Superheroes are real!

OET@WillametteMission0512*Breaking News*

Oregon Parks and Recreation has come to the conclusion that superheroes do, in fact, exist. More commonly known as volunteers, these incredible folk harness their powers for good, in service to their communities. Every year, Oregon Parks and Recreation has engaged about 8,000 superheroes disguised as Park Hosts, Park Adopters, Friends Groups volunteers and individual project volunteers of all ages. Collectively, these good Samaritans volunteer an average of 600,000 hours of their time every year in service to Oregon’s beloved parks. That has to rival Superman!

At Oregon Parks and Recreation, we are proud of the fact that our parks attract visitors from around the world, which is an accomplishment that is due in large part to you- our superhero volunteers. This National Volunteer week, we would like to thank our superheroes, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping to keep our parks beautiful, engaging and dynamic.

Help us continue our legacy by sharing your experiences with friends, family and other community members. We are eager to meet the superheroes of tomorrow and beyond!

    I like the article but the ad at the end on the article has no place in the State Park article, unless we are promoting alcohol now.
