The mission of the “Friends of Strasburg Parks and Rec” is to improve the quality of life for all Strasburg residents by generating funding and support for projects and programs that enhance and supplement activities and scholarships offered through the Strasburg Parks and Recreation District.
The ‘Friends’ organization meets quarterly and organizes several fundraising activities throughout the year. The organization also provides an annual scholarship to a Strasburg High School student in addition to the youth scholarships offered through the District. If you are interested in participating in the organization please contact the office, 303-622-4260. We are always looking for community members interested in helping!
