Park volunteers are making a difference
March 30, 2012 · Updated 2:11 PM
The Village Green Metropolitan Park District commissioners want to extend heartfelt thanks to a group of 17 hardy volunteers of all ages from nearby Bayside Church who turned out on St. Patrick’s Day for a cleanup day at the Village Green Community Park in Kingston.
They picked up and disposed of trash from the nearby woods, which had been in use as a trash dump; cleaned the tennis courts next to the picnicking park; pulled scotch broom and cut away blackberry, and generally restored order to the site. What a difference! Altogether, they donated more than 68 person-hours to the betterment of our community.
We thank John Bennett and Michael Nau for organizing the event, and would like to recognize everyone who participated. We are grateful to you and we hope to prove worthy of an ongoing relationship with you as we continue our efforts to make the Village Green in Kingston a true community asset, built and maintained to a high standard by local people for the least possible cost. It’s part of what will make the Village Green a great home for the new community center.
Thanks for being good neighbors!
