Hello FRIENDS Volunteers,
I have been staring at the same number for a while now, 599. Friends currently has 599 volunteers who have entered volunteer hours in the last two years or have signed up to be a new volunteer.
Everyday I rush to the computer to see if we've hit 600. So far we haven't but I am
TOTALLY OK with that, 599. Who would have thought Friends would have so many volunteers actively working in the park?!
It is amazing!
This year alone we have had
72 new volunteers report hours and the
volunteer hours have increased by 1,520 HOURS from last year! Yes, you read that right, service to the park is up
Y'all are amazing!
I am truly humbled to work with such an amazing group of people that give to public lands so freely!
I am thankful for each one of you out there working in the park to make it a great place to visit. Thanks you for all you do! I am sure your enthusiasm for the park will make that 599 turn into 600 in no time, who knows maybe we will even see 610!
For the love of the park!
The FRIENDS of the BRP Staff
P.S. Since the time this section was written (Monday) to now (Friday midday) we have increased volunteers to
604 :-) It's fun to a FRIEND!
