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.

VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT

Arthur Deverill
Providence RECenter's
2014 Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year

Art Deverill has been a front desk volunteer at our RECenter for five years, and during that entire time has shown unwavering devotion to the needs of both the Providence staff and its patrons. As the first contact with customers, Art greets them with his wonderful smile, hardy laugh, and great disposition. His ability to make all those he encounters feel comfortable and welcome has been commented upon by many.

Art has demonstrated that he is a team player, and has often come in on very short notice to help out. In addition to performing his regular front desk duties, he also helps out with class registrations and with the busy first day of class check-ins. Art has always been willing to go above and beyond expectations, such as during the time he provided assistance in handling a large crowd in response to the pass sale contest.

Customers and staff alike all feel a bit happier when they see Art on Monday and Friday mornings. For his great enthusiasm and ability to handle all situations very positively and professionally, we are pleased to name Art Deverill Outstanding Volunteer of the Year for Providence RECenter.
