Park ambassadors needed

The Suwanee Police Department will offer an hour-long orientation and training program on May 10 for volunteers interested in serving as park ambassadors along the Suwanee Creek Greenway and in city parks. For an application and more information, contact Ofc. Elias Casanas at elias@suwanee.com or (770) 904-4607.

"Park ambassadors help serve as our eyes and ears on the Greenway and in city parks," Casanas said in a press release. "These volunteers are folks who regularly use the park and trail system; through the ambassador program, they simply take us along with them."

The session will be from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Suwanee Police Department.
