VOLUNTEER AT AUDREY MOORE RECenter
It is never too late to start following up on your new year's resolutions! Did you resolve to volunteer more, and give back to your community? Did you resolve to lose weight and get in shape? You can do both by volunteering here at Audrey Moore! We welcome new volunteers to help us in the fitness room, the front desk and outdoors at our park. Our volunteers are all ages, from young teens to our active seniors. This is a community RECenter and is a great place to see your friends and neighbors in classes and around the center. There is a strong sense of camaraderie with all of the staff here; both volunteers and paid employees. Think about coming to the RECenter and seeing what we have to offer you!
We are looking forward to all of the summer camps and the multitude of outdoor programs here at Audrey Moore and in Wakefield Park. Be sure to check out Parktakes Online or pick up a Parktakes magazine at our front desk. Sign up for something new to you. Expand your horizons. Try a boot camp out with our fitness department, OR put your child in our Kids Boot Camp! They will LOVE it. Walk the paths; see how beautiful it is even right next to the beltway. The volunteer opportunities expand to include outside clean-up so if you enjoy being outdoors this is a way to volunteer in the fresh air and sunshine.
Come try any one of our awesome drop in exercise classes or sign up for a fitness class. There is nothing more motivating than working out with friends.
Join the volunteer team at your neighborhood RECenter and get the insider’s edge on the latest developments!
Audrey Moore RECenter's
2015 Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year
For some people volunteering and service to our youth and community is in their blood. Gary Blasser is one of those people.
Dating back to his college fraternity, and continuing with long volunteer stints with both the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts of America, he has always been counted on to step up and get things done to help better operations. Audrey Moore RECenter is fortunate to have someone as dedicated and hard working in their volunteer core.
Gary came to Audrey Moore in March 2013 after a long career in Government service at the Defense Intelligence Agency. Since this time he has logged over 500 hours of service to the RECenter. He has been invaluable to Audrey Moore as a fitness monitor and greeter and a balance class instructor assistant. He has also chipped in to serve at the front desk during the busy first day of classes and helps smooth out this very stressful time
Additionally, Gary led two major "clean up" projects at the
center. He planned the tasks to be accomplished including trash
pickup, mulching, planting and painting and organized and directed
the volunteers to successfully get the job done. He always
provides valued input and suggestions as what can be done to enhance
the RECenter and follows through to have them completed.
For his hard work, dedication, and his willingness to do whatever it takes to better the operations of Audrey Moore RECenter at Wakefield Park, Gary Blasser is this year's deserving recipient of Volunteer of the Year.
