Help clean up your community

| April 4, 2016

COSHOCTON – Lake Park received a good spring cleaning thanks to the help of volunteers.

“This place would not look the way it does going into the season if it wasn’t for the Friends of the Parks holding clean up day every year,” said Lori Everhart, park director. “There is no way we could do this ourselves.”

The Annual Lake Park Clean Up Day was held April 2. People of all ages were invited to come help weed, trim, mulch and pick up limbs and litter and then enjoy a picnic lunch provided by Friends of the Parks.

“We are here to support Lake Park and this is a great way to help get the park ready for spring and summer,” said Danielle Erwin-Ellis, president of Friends of the Parks.

There still are several opportunities this spring to help do some cleanup work in the community.

The Big Coshocton Cleanup is from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m., Saturday, April 16. Registration will be on the court square and the first 50 participants receive a free t-shirt. Donuts, bottled water and garbage bags are provided. Receive assigned area at registration. There also will be a container at the fairgrounds sponsored by Boy Scout Troop 403 accepting old appliances and one sponsored by Kimble accepting old furniture. Both containers will be located near the Alder Street entrance. Questions, call the United Way office at 740-622-4567.

The Triple Locks Spring Cleanup is scheduled for 1 p.m., Sunday, May 1. Bring your rake or other items to help spruce up the Triple Locks landscape. Everyone is welcome.

Clary Gardens Project Day is Saturday, May 14. Families are welcome to come assist in building large Bean Teepee’s in the children’s garden from 9 to 11 a.m.
