#FindYourPark- National Park Centennial

Today marks a special day... the 100th anniversary of our National Parks Service! As a family, our connection runs deep... My twin sister and I didn't have to look far when asked to #FindYourPark, our park found us before we were born– Our grandfather purchased a house IN Cape Cod National Seashore shortly before we came to be and this house has now been in our family for over 50 years, providing years of happy memories and family connections... just as our national parks do for all of us. What a wonderful legacy! Our parks connect us to our past and provide windows into the future... here are some of our connections and here's to wishing you lots of fun and happy memories as you #FindYourPark! 

"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul."
