The volunteers hauled away a half-dozen bags of weeds, sticks and trash from the County park on Railroad Avenue. Under the umbrella of the Glyndon Community Association, neighbors will weed the flower beds and police the playground for trash every month throughout the summer.
Saturday’s volunteers included Barbara McClellan, Barbara Whitman, David Hughes, David Porter, Lee Wroe, Sean and Michelle Kriebel, Elise Armacost, John Morris, and Kim and Per Karlsen.
The Glyndon Community Association Easter Egg Hunt previously scheduled for Saturday, April 9, at Glyndon Station Park has been postponed due to soggy weather. Check back here later for a rain date.
