Volunteer care day to take place at Lime Bluff Park April 25

HUGHESVILLE – Now that warmer weather is coming, the board members of the East Lycoming Recreation Authority are asking for volunteers to come and help clean up areas at Lime Bluff Park near Hughesville.

“Everyone is welcome to come and help,” said Tom Zavalydriga, Vice-Chair of East Lycoming Recreation Authority. “We need your help in preparing the park opening for the summer.”

On Saturday, April 25 employees from Comcast and community volunteers have designated the day to help mulch, pull weeds, plant flowers, paint, and do some general clean up work. Starting at 8 a.m. volunteers can arrive and register at the large pavilion. The event will be held, rain or shine according to Zavalydriga. “Bring the whole family,” he added.

Volunteers will be given a free lunch afterwards and Comcast will be handing out free t-shirts.

Come see the new fireplace that was built by masonry students at Penn College during the fall of last year. Finishing touches are being placed and a future date will be announced for a formal dedication.

Lime Bluff Park is supported and maintained entirely by volunteers in the community. This week is National Volunteer Week, so this serves as a good opportunity to get involved. Comcast is also helping with financial support to help maintain the park. The more volunteers who come and help, will give the park more financial support. This is a national endeavor on this day for Comcast, and Lime Bluff Park is their favorite local destination for clean-up day.

Joe Rocco is the coordinator for Pennsylvania and helped establish this as an annual event here in Lycoming County.

Lime Bluff Park is located off Route 405 on Elm Drive in Wolf Township. The park features walking trails, picnic areas, a ball field, horse shoe pits, bocce ball courts, and an eighteen hole disc golf course, plus a multi purpose field. Community members can use the fields for various activities as needed.
