Dear DRPS Members,

                We have come to the end of another successful year in the field of recreation and parks.  Many individuals and organizations have made significant contributions in the areas of parks, recreation, and conservation.  The Delaware Recreation and Parks Society would like to recognize these people and groups for their efforts.  The Recognition and Awards Committee asks for your assistance with this task.

Please review the material, which provides information about the awards to be presented.  Think back over the past year for the individual or group that you feel should be nominated for an award.  Please use the appropriate form to type the information about the nominee and their achievements.  Feel free to forward this information to co-workers who may not have received this e-mail.

In addition to the nomination forms, you will also find applications for the Peter D. Adams Scholarship and the William J. Hopkins Fellowship.  Anyone who wishes to be considered for either of these awards must complete and submit the corresponding application form by the deadline date.  If your application is chosen, you will receive financial assistance to further your professional development.

It is a great honor to be recognized by your peers for a job well done.  The Recognition and Awards Committee urges you to nominate the individuals or groups that you feel have made a significant impact in 2022.  Please return all nominations and applications no later than January 27 to:

Patrick Thompson, DRPS Recognition and Awards Committee
PO Box 36
Yorklyn, DE  19736

Winners will be announced at the Annual Recognition and Awards Banquet on March 2 in conjunction with our Annual Conference.  Thank you again for your assistance.
