Edmonson Voice Staff
Over a dozen volunteers braved the damp, chilly air on Saturday as they first met at Chalybeate Park, then HWY 70 for a total clean up effort, sponsored by Edmonson County Parks and Rec.
Program Administrator Greg Hudson was pleased with the turnout and expressed his gratitude to all the volunteers.
"When the community helps, it truly makes a big difference," he said. "This allows the Parks & Rec staff to work on ohter areas of maintenance and devote more time to events like the Easter Egg Hunt next weekend and youth sports."
Hudson said that the organization has worked hard at creating and implementing new programs this year, and there's already quite a buzz built for the March 26 Community Easter Egg Hunt. Parks & Rec is expecting a huge turnout for the first-year event.
