                                             Would your organization like to adopt one of our parks?

                                             American Water Company has adopted City Park. They have had vari-
                                             ous workdays at the site and have helped us with projects such as trim-
                                             ming, planting, raking of leaves, and much more. They set up work days
                                             during the warmer months to provide needed assistance. By doing so
                                             they have helped us dress up our parks and made them more enjoyable
                                             for our community to use them. We are looking to more organizations
                                             to adopt a park. If your club would be interested in adopting one of our
                                             parks, please call Steve Howard, our Maintenance Specialist at 541-
                                             2353 or email him at showard@hopewellva.gov.
