Park Board Elects New Officers

The Claudius Crozet Park Board of Directors elected its new officers in January. Kim Guenther will serve as president, Melissa Miller is vice president, Nancy Black is the new secretary and long-time treasurer Jo Ann Perkins will continue in that role.

Several new members have also joined the park board. “This addition of new ideas and energetic enthusiasm to our solid base of knowledgeable, veteran members will provide thoughtful and creative improvements to our community park,” said Guenther.

Claudius Crozet Park is home to the ever-expanding Peachtree Baseball program, the Gators Swim Team (Jefferson Swim League champs), soccer and baseball fields, Quick Start tennis courts, and Boot Camp. The community pool is now open year-round and fabulous facilities and programs are being offered by the YMCA. Walking trails are being developed and soon a dog park will be built, too.

“This jewel of Crozet is a community park,” said Guenther, “and its success requires solid community participation. There are several park service projects throughout the year, from cleaning up trails to painting fences to planting trees. Check out the park’s new information kiosk or visit the park’s website, crozetpark.org, to find events, programs and projects that interest you.”

Financial donations are needed to maintain the condition of the park and take on new projects, Guenther said.

The park recently hired Jody Giles to be the director of the twice-a-year Crozet Arts and Crafts Fair, which is the park’s major fundraiser.
