Employee
of the
Month


Vanessa Marshall has been with Lil' Sprouts Academy for almost 3.5 years. During this time she has taken on various responsibilities: teaching in the preschool and pre-k classrooms, helping develop and organize curriculum, mentoring teachers and most currently being a PIC (person in charge). She is always going above and beyond, setting the bar high above what is expected. 

The love she has for our kiddos and our cause shows immensely in the work that she does, and we are so fortunate to have her!

PARK PARTNER OF THE MONTH

Hees Enterprises have been incredible supporters of the Parks department, donating in meaningful ways over the past several years. 

Owners, Fergus and Tammy Loughran are faithful customers of the Astoria Aquatic Center and have always supported its place in the community.  Most recently, the Loughrans donated funds to refurbish all of the weight benches in the Aquatic Center fitness room before our annual closure, contributing to the enhancement of our facility. Thank you so much, Fergus and Tammy for supporting Astoria Parks!
