Volunteer of the Summer 2021 Season Priya Shilmon
Priya enjoys watching the community grow with new buildings and activities, which allows for new places and/or events where she can spend her free time! Priya has volunteered for the Family Campout, Comedy Showcase, Mighty Kids Triathlon, and Movies in the Park. “Based on the couple of volunteering events I’ve helped out with the Park District so far, my favorite event was either the Family Campout or Comedy Night since I was able to meet other volunteers and could socialize with not only them, but also the diverse guests. Overall it was a fun experience to guide support in these events!”


Thank you Priya!
