On June 27, more than 30 volunteers answered the call to help beautify the Memorial Garden at Chautauqua Park and around the Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus. Volunteers raked, spread and placed new mulch. We're grateful to those who are working hard to ensure that these grounds are beautiful for all to enjoy. Thank you!
“Thank you to all who have put your love (and sweat!) into the Lakeside gardens. Your dedication and attention to mulching, weeding and cleanup is so greatly appreciated. Thank you for sharing your time and talents to create such beautiful gardens" - Loretta Wilken, Gardener/ Groundskeeper

Volunteers finished the cleanup of Cherry Park and the Campground Park this week by re-staining the wood. Special thanks to Greg and Darby Buehler for the generous stain donation for the playground equipment. Because of the volunteers' hard work and the Buehlers' generous donation, the playgrounds will be safe, fun and clean for the children of Lakeside!
