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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
