I thought this was a cool idea. Do you know of other park and rec departments who give out similar awards? Post your experience in the comments.
Danville Parks, Recreation and Tourism last week recognized URW Community Federal Credit Union with a "Partner in Play" award.
Bill Sgrinia, director of the city's recreation department, was on hand Thursday morning at URW along with assistant tourism director Heather Vipperman to present the award.
Danville was recently designated as a 2008 Playful City USA Community, and recognized URW as a valuable partner in efforts to help create a desirable quality of life for all citizens in the Danville region.
The "Partner in Play" award is given only to individuals and organizations that continually go above and beyond their call in supporting the recreation department, said Sgrinia.
