as a ref.
FYI:You may drive through the park during warm
weather and see us sitting outside our office. Please do not assume we are not working.
With a staff of only two, we are often working 10-12 hour days. During summer months,
our Playground Program runs in the large shelter across from our office, a Tennis program at the Tennis Court, and
we also manage Mini Golf. We often sit outside watching Mini Golf for customers if no staff person
is scheduled due to budget or watching the Playground Program, while staying close enough to hear incoming phone calls.
We may also be on our lunch break, yet still answering phones, waiting on clients, working Mini Golf, etc.
So Please…don’t just assume we are not working. We work 24/7. Thank
WCRC wishes to sincerely
thank the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation and all of it's staff, board members, and contributors. Because
of the 2011-12 Community Action Grants which provided scholarships to 80 kids and purchased supplies for the Playground
Program. We appreciate all you've done for the youth of our community!
