Quote from Carol's supervisor:
“I have had the pleasure of working with Carol at the Park District for many years, and in many different capacities.  Now, as her supervisor, I can say she goes above and beyond for the Park District and other co-workers on a daily basis.  Carol runs the Birthday Bonanza, is the site director at the Ivy Hall location of Clubhouse, and she runs the Camp Connection program in the summer.  Carol still offers help to anyone who asks, or anyone she sees in need of a helping hand.  Carol helped me this past summer manage the Post Summer Camp Field Trips in many different ways, and I can’t thank her enough for her time and energy, knowing how much else she has going on here at the Park District with other programs she runs.  Carol is a huge asset to the Park District, and we are lucky to have her on our team.  I hope Carol realizes how appreciated she is by many different people here at the Buffalo Grove Park District, especially me.” -Liz Sass, Program Specialist
