Battle Ground board works to adjust upcoming holiday events

BATTLE GROUND — Following a 2018 by survey community members, Battle Ground formed a Parks and Community Advisory Board, a seven-member volunteer group to help evaluate and develop parks, recreational programming and community events. They are Josie Calderon, board chair; Jennifer Rosenberger; Michelle Yenderrozos; Jen Hamilton; Glen Erickson; Toni Wise, and Tyrel Halme, youth representative. As fall approaches and the community continues to navigate unexpected changes with the pandemic, the board continues to look for new ways to build community connections and engagement. They have shifted their focus to the upcoming holiday season and plans for Battle Ground’s Halloween Fright Night and Holiday Tree Lighting events. “Celebrating tradition and connecting as a community is more important than ever,” said Calderon. “Our annual Halloween Fright Night and Holiday Tree Lighting events may look a bit different this year, but we will celebrate as a community — that’s what Battle Ground does.”
