FRIENDS & LEGENDS

"Celebrating Friends & Legends" reception is held each year to honor those who lend support and volunteer to aid in the mission of the Foundation. The "Art & Irene Malasto Legends Award" is presented to give recognition and appreciation to a person or business that has supported the Valpo Parks in a significant way through volunteer service, leadership, and/or gifts of financial support. New in 2018, the "Community Champion" Award serves to honor someone in the community who demonstrates leadership and stewardship in the community. The 2019 Friends & Legends reception will be held on Thursday, May 2.
