NORTH BRUNSWICK – The Township of North Brunswick was presented the Agency Showcase Award for an Agency Brochure at the New Jersey Recreation and Park Association (NJRPA) Annual Awards Dinner.

Lou Ann Benson, director of the North Brunswick Parks, Recreation and Community Services was presented the award on Feb. 26 in Atlantic City.

The North Brunswick Community Services Brochure was recognized for its unique pictograph chart that uses symbols to clearly display the amenities at each of the township’s parks, as well as the colorful headlines alerting residents to programs and events geared toward their specific age groups, according to information from the NJRPA.

The NJRPA is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting parks and recreation; enhancing the professional development of its members; advocating sound policy and stewardship related to parks, recreation, resource management, and leisure services; and increasing awareness of the value of play and preservation of the environment to interested citizens and the public.

The purpose of the awards program is to honor and identify dedicated leaders, employees, and volunteers in the field of Parks and Recreation, and to recognize the state’s outstanding Recreation and Park agencies for excellence in programming, publicity and facility design. The goal of the awards program is to focus state attention on the achievement of Park and Recreation agencies, to recognize the continuing efforts of staff and volunteers, and to acknowledge support extended by member agencies.
