I'm New Here...

I'm New Here...

…and I couldn’t be more excited to join the team at the Lena KOA Holiday.  My name is Kim Baxter, and I’ve been hired to handle the social media accounts and marketing responsibilities, as well as plan crafts and activities for this year’s theme weekends.  I’ve known Joe and Diane Long, the KOA owners, for over 15 years; Joe and I worked together in the parks and recreation field in the Chicago suburbs.   Now a resident of Lena, I get to put my parks and rec. background and experience to use for the KOA.  My most recent Park District job was as a Marketing Coordinator, but I’ve been working for districts for 30 years.  This job with the Lena KOA has proven to be an awesome hybrid of a job with both administrative and on-site work.  When I roll into the campground on Saturday’s with my craft and game supplies, it’s like being a camp counselor all over again!   

For the staff and guests I’ve already had the pleasure of meeting, thank you for being so welcoming!  And if we haven’t met at the Rec Hall yet, I look forward to meeting you soon for the next arts and craft project.
