Farmside recently participated again this year in “Renewal and Remembrance” in Washington DC- an event put on annually by committed volunteers of the National Association of Landscape Professionals.
Working along side over 300 people in the landscape industry at the Lincoln Memorial as well as Arlington cemetery, is a tradition for the Kuperus family that they continue to make part of their summer plans.
Leading the children’s program, Lisa and AnnaMarie got to connect with the next generation of Renewal and Remembrance- a perfect testament to the work their family has put in to this project.
Unexpectedly, the Kuperus family was recognized for their commitment to the annual project by the NALP. Richard wrote in a personal post regarding the trip,
“It is such a privilege to be able to serve in this capacity at our nations capitol. Our family had the humbling honor of being awarded the “Workhorse Award,” which I have witnessed being given to so many great leaders and volunteer in our industry over the years. I never imagined being given this award because there are so many worthy and instrumental people involved in the process of creating this event. Thank you to all who served and continue to serve.”
