Work Day 5-18-19

On May 18, we held our spring work day. The main focus was the park that we put in last fall. We brought in soil to level out that ground so that seed could be put in. The ladies from Alpha Kappa Alpha helped by weeding the four circle areas in the park.  Mulch was also placed for the beginning of our walking path around the park. Thanks to Foresters Financial for providing the funds and sending volunteers and to everyone who participated!
