DCP Volunteer Bingo A Blast!

Volunteers enjoyed an evening of food and bingo.
Darke County Parks would like to send a huge thank you to all of their volunteers. Whether they regularly help with school groups, maintenance, animal care, historical interpretation, special events, habitat healing, or anything in between, the park district board and staff truly appreciate all their hard work and dedication! The staff hopes all the volunteers have enjoyed the past year at the park and will continue to volunteer for many years to come!

Last month, volunteers gathered for an evening of fun, food, and friendship at the Nature Center to celebrate a year’s worth of volunteer accomplishments. After a light supper, volunteers enjoyed an ice cream sundae bar where they could create the perfect cool treat for a hot summer evening. Then everyone played bingo and received a plethora of prizes including fairy garden planters, gift cards, Pampered Chef cookware, and even a Kindle Fire all donated by staff and local businesses. A special thank you goes to KitchenAid Experience and the Darke County Visitors Bureau for donating a KitchenAid blender won by Robert Wiest in a very lucky bingo.

Volunteer Coordinator, Kathi McQueen, who organized the event, said, “Our park volunteers are so generous with their time. I took over this position early this year, and they have worked so hard to help make the transition smooth.” She also encouraged anyone who may be thinking about volunteering to give her a call or an email to discuss the wide variety of opportunities available.

To inquire about volunteer opportunities or any of the exciting programs offered by Darke County Parks, call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165 or email
