Employee of the Season

Full time staff nominates seasonal and part-time staff that goes above and beyond their job duties. Administrative staff then votes on who should be chosen as the Employee of the Season. The employee is recognized by the Park Board of Commissioners and receives $50 along with a plaque placed at the Weiss Community Center.

Eileen Frage

Eileen Frage has been a staff member since summer 2016. Eileen is our Camp Coordinator for our Summer Camp Program. This past summer she took on more responsibilities and did it all with a smile. Eileen’s attention to details and enthusiasm really set the tone for summer camp. Eileen coordinated fi eld trips, buses, staff trainings and WOW factors for this summer. She served as a real role model to the camp staff and always made herself available to the campers and parents when needed. Eileen does not have to be asked to accomplish tasks, she does them in a timely fashion and goes above and beyond her role. We are proud to have Eileen as one of our own River Trails Park District employees and it is with great pride to award her Employee of the Season
