Help Out With Parks Clean-Up
Paden City and Sistersville parks took a beating this past weekend, due to the heavy rains and subsequent flooding that ravaged the area. The images are alarming. According to city officials, Sistersville’s park will require extensive clean-up. According to Paden City Mayor Ken Stead, Paden City Park’s low-lying areas took on floodwater. Stead also noted that a large amount of clean-up would be necessary.
Our communities have a way of coming together to make great things happen. Whether it is a benefit or some other type of fundraiser, folks respond. With warmer weather upon us, the parks will be utilized before we realize it. We encourage our readers to reach out to the local parks and recreation departments. Ask how you can help with flood recovery, and more. The more people, giving a little bit of time and effort, the sooner we will be on the way to a prosperous and safe summer for our communities’ children.
