More Room for Fun

Providence’s racquetball court has been converted into a classroom, providing additional space that will allow the RECenter’s programs to grow.

Win One for the RECenter

Camaraderie, cooperation and spirit were on display at Frying Pan Farm Park when Providence RECenter’s contingent took first place in the Park Authority’s Farm Olympics. This team-building and morale-boosting event pits representatives from the agency’s park sites, field offices and headquarters sections against each other in pursuit of the coveted Corn Gold.

Joan Carson
Providence RECenter’s
2013 Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year

Joan is an outstanding volunteer because she is ALWAYS willing to go above and beyond whatever is needed. She is incredibly flexible with her schedule and always volunteers to do extra duties to help make the RECenter run smoothly.

Joan is flexible and comes in when we need her. As a Front Desk Associate, she is always very friendly when greeting the patrons and has built a great rapport with many of the clients in her six years of service. She also volunteers as a Class Instructor Assistant and goes out of her way to recruit customers to take the class that she assists with. Above and beyond all of these duties, she is always at our beckon call when we have a special need for a volunteer. She has helped us tremendously at our annual craft show and has often worked the first day of classes when the front desk is very busy. Joan truly wants to help people, and for that we thank her. Congratulations Joan!
