It was a festive, holiday crowd that packed the Everett Senior Center Dec. 10 for the annual Parks and Recreation breakfast.
Joe Huff, executive director of the Maryville Alcoa Blount County Parks and Recreation, said response was good to the annual event.
“We had a good crowd, one of the largest crowds we’ve ever had,” he said. “You never know when you send out invitations who is going to come. The weather wasn’t great, but we had one of best crowds ever.”
Huff thanked the staff for their work. “The staff did a great job preparing food, and it was good as usual,” he said.
Huff said the event is a great opportunity to give back to those in the community who help Parks and Rec.
“Lots of people are sponsors and partners in a lot of events,” Huff said. “And there are different city and county commissioners and councilmen we want to say thanks to. It’s an opportunity for Parks and Rec to give back to those who help out throughout the year.”
