  • VLPRA brought home a national award for its work with individuals with disabilities. The National Association of County Park and Recreation Officials presented its 2018 “Breaking Barriers” award to VLPRA for the Authority’s annual Egg-Ceptional Egg Hunt. VLPRA Program Coordinator Tammy Crosby accepted the award at the NACPRO Banquet in Nashville, Tennessee. This award recognizes a unique program or facility that enables and encourages greater participation in parks and recreation by persons with disabilities. Crosby created the Egg-Ceptional Egg Hunt for children with disabilities in 2014 and it has been delighting local families since. The event is a fully accessible egg hunt with games and prizes where families can participate together, regardless of ability. The Egg-Ceptional Egg Hunt is free to the public and held every spring at VLPRA’s Craig Center on Gordon Street. ***Attached is a photo of NACPRO President Bill Maasen presenting the Breaking Barriers Award to VLPRA Program Coordinator Tammy Crosby as well as a couple of pictures of the event itself.
