Volunteers needed for Debs Park cleanup this Saturday

Our park neighbors need some extra hands this weekend. Come on out if you can.

9:00 a.m. Saturday June 12

Follow the dirt trail branching off the paved road (Debs Park Road) from the picnic parking lot and walk up to the pond .

The Debs Park Advisory Board will be working on a cleanup project on the dirt trail to the pond, about halfway up from the picnic area parking lot. A huge pile of pine tree debris has sat for over a year, a perfect mess of fire hazard. City cutbacks eliminated the staff to clear this out, so the Debs PAB invites park users to help.

We need to move the debris next to the paved road. Staff will pick up whatever we can pile up there.
--Wear heavy gloves and closed shoes.
--Bring water and hand tools
--It's shady at the work site but use sunscreen if you're sensitive

Thanks for helping!

Martha Benedict
Chair, Debs Park Advisory Board
