volunteer-spotlight-david-grinderVolunteer Spotlight: David Grinder


Our special events have a special volunteer who shares his talents and expertise with children in our community. David Grinder is a financial advisor by day and on some weekends offers fantastic balloon-twisting and magician skills in some of our flagship events like MEGGA Hunt, Children’s Celebration, and Haunted Hayride. David has a warm and caring spirit and is passionate about giving back to communities that he lives in. His willingness to go the extra mile always amazes us. David can be seen at our events with a long line of children eagerly waiting to receive their unique balloon creation or watch his wonderful magic show.

David says, “Willamalane Park and Recreation District is making an amazing difference in our community through so many positive and uplifting activities. It is a privilege to be a volunteer and partner in the things they are doing for the children and families in our area.”

We appreciate David’s talents that he shares with our community, and we are so thankful to have him on our volunteer team.
