About 450 delegates from around Virginia gathered earlier this month for the 58th annual Conference of the Virginia Recreation and Park Society, including representatives from Herndon.
The Town of Herndon's Department of Parks and Recreation won two awards at the event, which was held at Wintergreen Resort in Nelson County. More than 100 applications were submitted for awards in 14 different categories.
Herndon Parks and Recreation won two awards in the 25,000 and less population category:
• The 2011 Herndon Festival Sponsorship Brochure was voted Best Promotional Effort-Traditional
• The 2011 Herndon Festival Special Design T-shirt was voted Best Promotional Effort-Specialty.
The conference provides a forum for parks and recreation departments to exchange information and discuss areas of common interest.
