Making Parks and 
a Priority 

Special Request from KRPA History Committee Chair

07 Nov 2022 3:25 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The 2023 conference committee is excited to celebrate with you at the upcoming KRPA conference. It is no ordinary conference. It is the 75th anniversary and because of that, we have formed a history committee to unearth all those unique things that make KRPA special!

We need your help to tell the rich story of this profession over the years and across the state. We have received some photos from around the state, but we want your agency represented too.

The specific items that we are looking for are:
- historical photos from your community and KRPA events
- program t-shirts
- vintage sports gear- uniforms, jerseys, equipment
- proclamations, brochures, member cards
- vintage swimsuits and lifeguard gear
- vintage lawn mower or park equipment 

We want something from every single organization that makes up KRPA. Every organization has that staff person who knows the history. Please engage them to help us take a trip down memory lane. Then, simply take a photo or scan the document and upload to one of these two options linked below.

Or, email me at susan.mong@jocogov.org or Amanda Sterling at amanda@krpa.org about artifact items that can be displayed at conference next year. Let’s mark this 75th anniversary well!
