Landscape Structures-sponsored keynote message echoes Essentially, yours… theme.

Bleill will inspire attendees to 'embrace the bad days and keep going forward, one step at a time.'

Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, along with its Indiana playground consultants, NuToys Leisure Products, Inc. and Countryside Play Structures, LLC., will exhibit at the 2015 Indiana Park & Recreation Association (IPRA) Conference Jan. 12-16, in Michigan City, Ind. The conference will feature Josh Bleill, Marine Corporal, author and community spokesman for the Indianapolis Colts, as the keynote speaker. This learning experience was made possible through the 2014-2015 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.

While serving in Iraq, Corporal Bleill was severely injured, resulting in the loss of both of his legs. After extensive rehabilitation, he returned to Indiana where he attacked his new life head-on—including employment as the Indianapolis Colts Community Spokesperson. Through his enthusiasm, infectious joy and sense of humor, Bleill will inspire attendees to “embrace the bad days and keep going forward, one step at a time.” His message echoes the Conference theme, Essentially, yours…, which suggests that parks and recreation departments provide essential services to communities.

Bleill will present a 90-minute session on Wednesday, Jan. 14, at 11:30 a.m. Following his session, attendees will have the opportunity to visit NuToys Leisure Products, Countryside Play Structures and Landscape Structures in the exhibit hall to learn about what’s new in playground design.
