The Western Service Area celebrated the end of another great year of VRPS in early December. We started with a tour of the state-of-the-art Horizons Edge Sports Campus in Harrisonburg. 
Following the tour the group participated in rock climbing, a friendly game of kickball and a meeting to finish out the year strong.  
We'd like to extend a big thank you to all who served on our 2023 WSA Board. We appreciate your hard work and commitment to VRPS.
