Show off your city and help support the TRAPS North Region! The TRAPS North Region Ways and Means Committee would like to challenge each city and organization to put together a basket of items that will showcase your city or organization and help TRAPS raise money at the conference’s silent auction.  Baskets typically include gift cards for local restaurants and attractions, swag from your city or organization, and anything you think people would enjoy.  Now we know everyone has great t-shirts and water bottles, but we are looking for items that are a little more unique and will make people want to visit your city! Please confirm that your city plans on bringing a basket so we can make sure we have adequate space available and just drop your cities basket off at the ways and means booth when you come to the conference that morning.

As an added bonus, the city/organization that raises the most funds with their basket will receive a celebratory high-five from the Ways & Means Committee and their picture on the TRAPS North Region website.  Remember that all funds go to bringing education and support for Parks, Recreation and open space within our communities. If you can donate a basket, please email
