SPRD turns 25
Last updated 5/9/2023 at 11:07am
Sisters Park & Recreation District (SPRD) is celebrating 25 years of being a special district.
The public is invited to their 25th birthday party on Friday, May 19 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in front of the Coffield Center. Activities will include music by DJ Chuck Boogie, kids’ crafts, fun games including cornhole, giant Connect Four and Jenga, a balloon artist, and, of course, cake! This free event is the perfect way to show your support for SPRD while also kicking off the weekend in style.
“Celebrating our time as a special district is not only fun but important. Thanks to the Sisters community, we were voted in as a special purpose taxing district in 1998,” states Jennifer Holland, executive director of SPRD. “Special districts are an essential part of local government that often get confused with city or county services. While we have great partnerships with other local governments in our area, we are in fact separate. Each of us have different tax rates, service areas, and core focuses.”
The SPRD birthday party will be outside, weather permitting. Have no fear, if the weather takes a turn, the party will be moved indoors. Come alone or with a group and enjoy a beautiful Friday evening with your friends at Sisters Park & Recreation District.
