“He was really informative about all of the different activities that Lewiston Parks and Recreation holds for the community. He made me think about sport and recreation and made me realize how important it is to communities. It was also really great to see how passionate he is about what he does every day.”
“Beeg did a great job at not only explaining the types of events the parks and rec puts on, but also explained the other qualities that parks and rec provides: Increased self esteem, increased work ethic, and a stronger team leadership bond.”
