Tonight at 6:00pm, South Bend Parks and Recreation Dept will be hosting their annual Volunteer Reception at the Chris Wilson Pavillion in Potawatomi Park. KSBB will be honored as will many others. We just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to the many people who helped make our two events this year so successful.
Park(ing) Day garnered much attention for KSBB and for our emerald parks. We really enjoyed working with the City of South Bend, Fiddler’s Hearth, Ampco Systems Parking, Foegley Landscape, and Ren Hen Turf farm. Participating in a world wide phenomenon was a great way to kick-off KSBB’s involvment in the South Bend Community.
The same great things can be said of our experience with “The Great South Bend Clean-up”. KSBB had over 40 volunteers, representing a variety of organizations, working at 4 of the major parks in the area. Volunteers from Memorial Hospital, Riverbend Credit Union, the Troyer Group, St. Joseph Catholic Parish, Michiana Watershed, and many others cleaned up portions of Leeper Park, Howard Park, Potawatomi Park, and Rum Villiage. We look forward to an even bigger impact next year.

Thank you for your support, your continued enthusiam, and your dedication to all things clean, green, and beautiful. Together, we will do great things!
