Growing Up With TDRPD

Posted to Amanda's Angle by Kyle Jost

I turned 40 last week.  It was a fun celebration with friends and family.  During the weeks preceding my birthday I found myself reflecting on where I am in life right now.   My reflections are happy - it is satisfying to think of the person I’ve become, the home I’ve created and the places I’ve been.  I am a real adult!  One repeating thought that I have is how I have spent almost the entirety of my adult life working for the Truckee Donner Recreation and Park District.  In many ways, we have grown up together.
