NewPointe Community Church helps city cleanup around new park

| August 3, 2018

COSHOCTON – NewPointe Community Church used its July 29 community impact day to help the City of Coshocton.

“They assisted us in cleaning up (our new) Waterworks Park by pulling weeds and moving brush,” said Safety-Service Director Max Crown. “They removed poison ivy and really worked on basically that whole peninsula on County Road 1A. They also cleaned up around both entrance signs to the city.”

According to Crown, there were about 150 people from the church who volunteered their time.

“We also had three or four city workers helping them,” Crown said. “It was a good collaboration.”

However, the volunteers from NewPointe didn’t just help the city. They also freshened up the landscaping at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Hunt, which is in the same area where they were working.

“They pulled weeds and put down new mulch,” Crown said. “He was overwhelmed with all they were able to do. He even had pop and water for them.”

In addition to donating man hours, the church also made a donation to help with further improvements at Waterworks Park.

To reach Waterworks Park, go to the end of Locust Street, turn right on North Water Street and the park will be on your left.
