The Town of Winamac is looking for some help from residents in cleaning up the Town Park.
Park Board President Courtney Poor says a cleanup day has been scheduled for Earth Day, Saturday, April 22. “Cleanup will be from 9:00 to 12:00, and then lunch will be provided afterward and there may be more work to be done after the lunch is served. But we’re just going 9:00 to 12:00,” he told the rest of the board last week. “A lot of the service organizations have been or will be contacted to help with this.”
The event was organized by the board’s advisory council, after members determined that many residents would be willing to help out but lack an organized method for doing so. They worked with Park Manager Dave Delorenzo to come up with a list of items for volunteers to work on.
Poor says the park cleanup event is in celebration of both Earth Day and Arbor Day.
