President's Letter

Dear Donors, Community Partners, Members, and Friends,

As President of your Friends of Staunton State Park, it is once again my pleasure to offer my appreciation to those who supported our mission, Working in partnership with others to preserve, promote and protect the wildlife, natural beauty and historic legacy of Staunton State Park for present and future generations. Through your generosity we have been able to contribute to the growth and success of our beloved Staunton.

It is my honor to announce our many accomplishments over the past 12 months. 2018 was once again a very successful year for our Friends Board. We added one new board member. Kathryn Brettell joined our team as Treasurer. Kathi has contributed greatly to the strength and success of our board. Our financial support for the Staunton Track-Chair Program made the program’s 2nd year a huge success. Nearly 200 of our visitors with disabilities had the opportunity to ‘hike’ Staunton’s trails. We purchased our 3rd track chair, funded a major portion of the new Track Chair Manager’s salary and funded the insulation and ceiling drywall for the new track chair garage.

We financially supported the park’s 3rd Eagle Scout Project improving the trail conditions on a section of Mason Creek Trail. These are just a small sampling of the contributions that your Friends TEAM was able to make to Staunton. For a more detailed list of accomplishments and future goals, please visit our website.

In conclusion, I want to thank my fellow board members for their dedication and hard work. Without your efforts, our continued success would not have been possible.

With my deepest appreciation,

Wayne T. Parkinson
President, Friends of Staunton State Park
