September 16, 2016 – In the Binghamton, NY studio of WNBF, Binghamton Now host Bob Joseph introduced listeners to a local organization that they may not have been previously aware. That organization is Broome County Adopt-A-Park, a for-profit that seeks to generate and increase tourism and recreation, not just to the parks of Broome County but to the many unique and less known attractions of the region.
The talk radio interview covered a range of questions about the organization, including what is the main purpose. Jiyan Omar, one of 5 Board members, detailed the mission statement in her first appearance on live radio.
“Our parks are inviting, stimulating, safe gathering places for all residents, celebrating the diversity of our neighborhoods, encouraging interaction. Our local businesses are the corner stone to our success. We encourage tourism and bringing the community together through recreation in our parks and community.”
Michael Vasquez, another Board member and political commentator (owner of M V Consulting, Inc.) also spoke with Mr. Joseph about the past paranormal investigations event held at the Bundy Museum in August, as well as the upcoming 1st Annual Medieval LARP. That LARP (Live Action Role Play) event will take place on September 18, 2016, in Otsiningo Park at 12-4pm.
The full 21 minute interview – that included a brief discussion of the Tabernacle United Methodist Candidate Forum (which Bob Joseph hosted and Michael Vasquez attended) at the end of the interview – can be seen below:
