Baked Alaska Annex, 12th Ave and River Walk
Astoria, OR
10/8/2017

 
Astoria Parks and Recreation along with the Astoria Downtown Historic District Association are sponsoring its 3rd annual Instant Gratification, Zero K All Fun Run
No Running – No Training
You read that correctly. It’s zero k. Zero as using as few muscles as possible. So why call it a fun run? We all know that the best part of a race is the finish line: t-shirts, and the post-race festivities.
 
The money raised will help fund Astoria Parks’ fun runs and health and wellness programs that were cut at the beginning of the year. Our slogan is:
 
“We don’t run so you can!”
The cost is $25. Runners will receive a t-shirt, beverages, plenty of water, food, and an award ceremony. The Zero K Run will take place on October 8th at 3:30pm and the start and finish line will take place at the Riverwalk/Baked Alaska Annex.
 
COSTUMES ARE HIGHLY ENCOURAGED

Employee
of the
Month


Jonah Dart-McLean and Katie Madison

Jonah Dart-McLean is our Parks Maintenance Supervisor.  Jonah’s department oversees 40 plus park sites, a fully operational cemetery, set-up and care for five softball/ baseball fields and the maintenance and care of six buildings (which includes maintenance at the Astoria Aquatic Center).  While this would be enough to keep a large crew busy from day to day, Jonah manages to keep all of these sites and facilities running smoothly with a very small staff.  Over the summer, this included one additional full-time staff, plus two to three part-time temporary staff.  Jonah is exceedingly organized and goes to great lengths to ensure each and every one of our facilities and sites are safe.


Katie Madison is one of our preschool Sunflower teachers at Lil' Sprouts. She works hard with her co-teachers to help create fun, engaging lessons and activities for the kids. Katie is a big team player and is someone you can always on count and will help out her co-teachers and other classrooms in any way she can. Her positive attitude and friendly smile is a huge asset to the Lil' Sprouts team.

Thank you both!
