Today we had the pleasure of hosting Dan Cahill from Burlington's Parks and Recreation department.  Per Dan's presentation and the Parks & Rec web site, "The Department of Parks, Recreation and Waterfront oversees all of Burlington’s 35+ Parks, 550+ Acres of Open Space, 4 Public Beaches, Street Trees & Greenways, Community Gardens, 3 Cemeteries, Miller Recreation Center, Leddy Ice Arena, Champlain Senior Center, North Beach Campground, Community Boathouse Marina and all Recreation Programs."  They manage an impressive portfolio, a vast array of assets that needs help from Burlington's residents.
The Burlington Sunrise Rotary Club really enjoyed Dan's presentation.  He convinced us that a Rotary volunteer session would be beneficial to both the city and our Club.  New Rotarian Ken Crites has agreed to lead efforts for what will probably be a May tree planting session.
