New P & R
Department Manager

Develops New
Department Focus

As of September 2010, Wayne E. Burton has gained the responsibility as Manager of Accomack Countyís P&R Department. This is something, as previously stated, he had been looking forward to after nearly 30 years experience with the program. His new strategies for bringing more activities to this program are broader and more inclusive than in prior years. Bringing in other professionals as speakers to provide insights via clinics, lectures and the like will strengthen the Parks and Recreation agenda to inspire local youth and adults.

A recent Management Conference held February 28- March 1, 2011 was organized by the Virginia Recreation & Park Society (VRPS) at the Hilton Garden Inn located in Suffolk, Virginia. The current president of the organization is Darrell R. Crittendon, Director of Recreation, Parks and Open Space for the City of Norfolk. The objective was to provide Parks and Rec managers/directors with an opportunity to network and gain additional problem solving techniques.

Standing Between Two Sparks:
Selena Cuffee-Glenn and Lakita Frazier are two women to be respected for their intelligence and achievements.

 Their interest in community and the needs of local people made networking with Burton a plus because his views of such needs are indeed mutual.

This yearís keynote speaker was Old Dominionís Head Football Coach, Bobby, Wilder. His stated goal was to "AIM HIGH" in everything he did in resurrecting the team from a 69 year absence, and his goal was achieved within two years. During this meeting, Burton was able to chat briefly with Wilder along with others who were also active participants. **** Click Picture to ZOOM

Tony Brothers, NBA Officiator,has his own special story to tell. He and Burton have a passion for the game and found it easy to exchange war stories about officiating when the crowd might not agree with every call you make.

Accomack County Parks and Recreation USDA Summer Food Service Program Team

The Accomack County Parks and Recreation's USDA Summer Food Service Program keeps the department's team quite busy. Gathering and delivering supplies is hard work, but it is also very emotionally satisfying because of the service that is being provided to the local communities. The average number of meals delivered are approximately 21,000 breakfast servings and 27,000 lunches within a 30 day period.
