banner field day

On Saturday, May 13, Houston’s legendary gym, the Fonde Recreation Center, filled again with the bounce of basketballs, the squeak of sneakers on the wood floor, the swish of pure jumpers, and enthusiastic cheers from the crowd. It all combined for great fun, more than a few laughs, plenty of energetic competition, and a second Public Service Recognition Week basketball tournament title for the Houston Parks and Recreation Department Dream Team. Eleven other teams entered what has become one of the most popular PSRW events saluting our COH public servants.

The HPARD Dream Team proved unbeatable sweeping past the HPW Shot Callerz, HPD Outlaws and HPW Public Enemy. They were among the 12 teams entered in the daylong tournament. Along with the Bravo Awards for COH employees, Essay Contest for high school students, and Poster Contest for young relatives of employees, the basketball tournament has become a popular tradition bringing together the city’s public servants.
