Thank You Park Volunteers! 

Posted by Melody Monday, March 21, 2016 1:25:00 PM

As the old saying goes "Many hands make light work".  That was certainly true for the Park Volunteer Day.  Thanks to our volunteers and our park staff, we were able to spread a large section of mulch to better the park trails, clean up a few natural areas and remove the old corral posts.  While the turnout was light, the volunteers worked hard to make a difference - and it shows!

Thanks to the following:
