Mayor Berry, Parks and Recreation Director Barbara Baca, Dr. Matt Schmader and Open Space Staff Honor Volunteer

Volunteer continues to serve despite cancer battle

On Friday February 24, 2012 Mayor Berry and Parks and Recreation Staff recognized Mrs. Karen Gibbs as an outstanding volunteer; Mayor Berry officially proclaimed that day as "Karen Gibbs Day". Mrs. Gibbs has battled cancer for nearly two decades, but continues to give her time to Parks and Recreation's Open Space Division. The Parks and Recreation Department salutes Mrs. Gibbs and thanks all volunteers who help make our parks and open space more beautiful and livable.
