NPS Volunteer Award

In 2017, Cincinnati’s Willa M. Sanders Girls Assembly No.18 won the George and Helen Hertzog Volunteer Youth Group Award bestowed by the National Park Service’s Midwest Region. This annual award for Outstanding Volunteer Service was earned by the girls who volunteered with the National Park Service to establish a new picnic area for the enjoyment of the general public. This picnic area has been named in honor of the group. The Willa M. Sanders Girls Assembly No. 18 group also volunteers at the Mount Auburn site assisting with the annual Easter Egg Hunt and with the 4th of July Ice Cream Social event.
