Annual Parks Recognition Awards – the Denny Awards – will be announced at a ceremony Parks and Recreation is holding at Lake Union Park.
Seattle Parks and Recreation invites volunteers, supporters of volunteers, and the community to the 2010 Annual Denny Awards for Outstanding Volunteer Stewardship. The event will be held on Tuesday, December 7, at 6:00 pm at the Lake Union Park Armory, 860 Terry Ave. N
Acting Superintendent Christopher Williams will recognize all nominees, and present awards to winners. Winners will be announced at the event.
Everyone is invited to enjoy great food, unique live performances, and door prizes. This event is free and open the public. This will be one of the last public events at the Lake Union Park Armory before the Museum of History and Industry converts it to a museum.
“Each year, about 40,000 individuals volunteer for Seattle Parks and Recreation, contributing almost 300,000 hours of service, worth nearly $6 million,” said Williams. “The Denny Awards ceremony is our small way of thanking our volunteers for their contribution to making Seattle Parks and Recreation the best it can be.”
The Denny Awards recognize the contributions of volunteers to Seattle Parks and Recreation parks and programs. They are named after David T. and Louisa Denny, who donated land for the first Seattle park in 1884 (Denny Park), where Parks headquarters are located.
