PAPILLION, Nebraska, September 23, 2020 – Lori Hansen has announced she will retire from her position as the City of Papillion’s Recreation Director later this year on December 4. Hansen has served in the role for 23 years.
During her career, Hansen has successfully managed Papio Bay Aquatic Center and numerous recreational programs, and added many other programs and services for area residents, including a bus service, senior center, the Papillion Race Series, the Papillion Farmers Market, SumTur Amphitheater, and most notably, Papillion Landing Community Recreation Center & Field House, which opened this past January.
“Lori has made a tremendous positive impact on the Papillion community,” said Mayor David Black. “She will certainly be missed, but the legacy she has left — especially Papillion Landing — will be felt for many years to come. Lori has been a good friend to many and her work here is another one of the reasons that Papillion feels like home for so many.”
The City will now begin its search for its next Recreation Director. The position has been posted for interested applicants to the City’s website at www.Papillion.org/HR.
