A New Door Opens When Community Supports Community
A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Open House for the new office of the Seneca County Park District took place on Tuesday, March 20, beginning at 9 am. Since 1996, many people have contributed personal time, donations, and services to bring the Park District to where it is today. This community showed its support with the passing of an operational levy in 2016. The Open House illustrated a culmination of how community truly supports community to benefit all.   “I was overwhelmed by the support that was shown that day, and every day since I became the Executive Director of the Park District in May 2017,” stated Sarah Betts, Executive Director of the Seneca County Park District. From the Park Board and Staff – A sincere thank you is extended to EVERYONE who has had a hand in the process over the years!
