Weight Lifting Partners of 40 Years: Olivia & David Brandt!
In 2019, Oliva and David Brandt moved to Evergreen to be closer to family and shortly became members at Buchanan Park Recreation Center. David is a retired Air Force pilot, who ran a squadron of approximately 17 jets for distinguished guests (Presidents, Generals, etc). Olivia was a real estate agent, who spent many years giving back to the community and volunteering for organizations like the Red Cross. Olivia and David have been lifting partners for 40 years!

Jamie Milligan brings home Bronze!
Our community has had the honor and privilege of watching Jamie Milligan’s journey to the 2022 Special Olympics in Orlando, Florida. From morning trail runs to swimming laps at Buchanan Park Recreation Center, Jamie has displayed the commitment it truly takes to prepare for the Special Olympics. Her commitment paid off, as Jamie earned a Silver Medal in the 1000 Meter Swim and a Bronze Medal in the Triathlon! However, Jamie actually finished the Triathlon first because she was accidentally turned around by a volunteer. Therefore, she did not technically complete the full course and the judging panel ultimately decided to award Jamie with Bronze. Jamie’s results may be bittersweet, however her journey was nothing short of legendary.

Rec Center Spotlight:
Wulf Recreation Center has a new flower garden!
EPRD’s self motivated and talented employee, Bob Kellogg, took it upon himself to plant a wildflower garden on the pathway leading to Wulf Recreation Center’s Skate Park and Playground area. The color of the flowers are vibrant enough to see from the parking lot, so it’s safe to say that the beds are thriving. All the summer sunshine and rainfall has certainly helped them flourish! Bob’s efforts show how a small enhancement can make a huge impact at park and recreation centers!
If you want to work with people like Bob and make an impact in the District, then please visit EPRD's Job Board to learn more about Custodian positions available in the District today!
