Church, local groups to work on parks
News-Ledger – March 23, 2011
Members of the region’s Mormon churches will partner with West Sacramento groups to put hundreds of volunteers to work rejuvenating the Riverwalk Park and Bryte and Alyce Norman parks, they have announced.
April 30 is a community service day for members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, which has a worship facility on Linden Road in West Sacramento. On Saturday, April 30, they will join members of the Bryte and Broderick Community Action Group and students from local schools (who will earn “community service” credit) on the work day.
They plan to use donated goods to help build and fix trails, plant 1,800 flowers and shrubs, plant trees, repair masonry and fences, and perform carpentry and painting projects.
Boy Scouts will install and relocate drinking fountains and assemble and install picnic benches and refurbish basketball courts, added church spokesperson Susan Ramsden.
“We welcome the opportunity to partner with the City and other community organization to demonstrate that the spirit of volunteerism is alive and well in West Sacramento,” said resident Kimber Goddard, one of the leaders of the 13 congregations in the Sacramento region.
To donate goods or volunteer, contact the Bryte and Broderick Community Action Committee at info@BryteandBroderick.org, or visit www.BryteandBroderick.org.
