FOLAR Community Partner Award
Please join us in congratulating Director of Recreation and Parks, Aaron Reidmiller, for being selected as the Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) Community Partner of the year. Mr. Reidmiller, with staff support, has helped improve quality of life throughout our region by way of FOLAR’s educational and recreational programs. Recently, Hopewell Recreation and Parks has worked with FOLAR to plant cypress trees at the riverfront, conduct clean-up events at the Hopewell City Marina, organize the largest-ever Paddle Battle event, plan for conservation of riverfront properties, and continue to support larger projects like the second phase of the Hopewell Riverwalk and the greater Appomattox River Trail. Aaron has been a longtime supporter of FOLAR, participating in some of the earliest Paddle Battle events over a decade ago. We are fortunate to have river stewards like Friends of the Lower Appomattox River working hard to keep our rivers protected and accessible for all to enjoy.
