LAWTON, OK (RNN Texoma) - The City of Lawton held a Parks and Recreation appreciation luncheon for employees and volunteers Wednesday in the Owens Multipurpose Center’s gymnasium on Lee Boulevard.
The Activity Coordinator says this event was meant to honor people who have volunteered with the department. “We are doing this simply because sometimes volunteers do not get recognized for all of their work and dedication. So we wanted to make sure that the volunteers that come and help us are recognized,” said Michell Rosario, Activity coordinator.
12 volunteers were recognized for their contributions to Parks and Rec events like the Easter egg hunt, Halloween party, and the Back-to-school Bash.
