This year, that fact was once again reinforced when the town's Parks and Recreation Department took home two awards for excellence from the 59th Annual Conference of the Virginia Recreation and Park Society, held earlier this month in Williamsburg.
Herndon's two awards were in the area of innovation and creativity in marketing.
The two awards were "Best Promotional Effort - Specialty" for its 2012 Herndon Festival mobile app, and "Best Promotional Effort - Traditional" for its 2012 summer camp brochure.
Over one hundred applications were received for awards in 14 different categories. Judged by a jury of its peers, Herndon's Parks and Recreation Department has won awards 12 out the past 23 years.
Herndon Parks and Recreation Department is nationally accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Park and Recreation Agencies, and is a four-time National Gold Medal Award winner for excellence in park and recreation management, presented by the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration.
