National Custodial Recognition Day

October 2nd is National Custodial Recognition Day.  In honor, we want to send out a HUGE thank you to our custodial team of Joel and Susie.  Joel and Susie come to work each day with a smile on their face, positive attitude, and a desire to serve and help others.  They have done an amazing job keeping our Recreation Center clean and safe for all.  We are very lucky to have them both on our team.  If you see Joel and/or Susie around in the building, please join us in saying Hello and giving them thanks.
