“The most memorable moments for me was how we were able to keep the playground equipment up, and the remodel of the back nine at Otis Park,” Deckard said. “Most importantly we have kept the playground equipment safe for the children.”

Parks Director Jimmie Jones thanked him for everything Tim has done for the Bedford Parks Department and serving as president of the board.
