The Culver City Senior Citizens Association, Inc. (CCSCA) received an Award of Excellence from the California Parks and Recreation Society (CPRS) and was honored at the 68th Annual CPRS Conference & Expo, held in Long Beach last month.

For more than 40 years CCSCA has made a positive, meaningful impact on the residents of Culver City, working as an outstanding volunteer service partner with the City’s Parks, Recreation & Community Services (PRCS) Department.

“Thanks to the CCSCA, countless diverse, life-enhancing programs have been and will continue to be available at the Culver City Senior Center. The CCSCA has allowed many projects to go forward, which has enhanced the lives of many and has made a difference in our community.

“When traditional funding sources are no longer available, we are especially grateful we can turn to our community partners, like CCSCA, for help,” said Culver City Mayor Micheál O’Leary.

Kay Heineman, Past President of the CCSCA Board of Directors added, “The CPRS awards program is the highest recognition our organization can receive in this field. It is because of the hard work of our many dedicated volunteers, partners and City staff that we received this wonderful recognition. We are honored to receive this award on behalf of our members.”

CPRS Executive Director Stephanie Stephens states, “Winning agencies represent the finest in initiatives addressing community issues, recreation programming and park planning in California. Park and recreation agencies throughout the state provide families, individuals, and groups access to spaces and places for play and exercise; opportunities for directed and self-directed recreation; and activities that facilitate social connections, therapy and lifelong learning.”

CPRS is a membership organization with 3,100 members representing the 535 local parks and recreation agencies through the state. The mission of CPRS is to advance the profession and its members through education, networking, resources, and advocacy.
