City Parks Clean Up
The City Park Clean Up was held a little earlier than normal - on April 8th. The weather was perfect with sunny skies and little wind.
This event collected 34 bags of trash, and 103 bags of leaves/limbs. Over 320 volunteers turned out to help this year! Students from local high schools, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and church groups joined the local residents to tackle each park.
The parks included: Kingsbury, Latty Grove, Diehl, Fort Grounds, Pontiac, Triangle, Bronson, Riverside and the Reservoir.
The City Park crews maintained the trash cans and hauled leaves and branches. Volunteers with rakes, brooms, or shovels pitched in to get the park ready for use!
Sponsors for the T-shirts and food were provided by City Beverage, Moose Lodge No. 2094, Servicemaster Clean, Defiance Optimist International Club and Defiance County Environmental Services KAB.
