Shenango Lake Day
SHENANGO LAKE -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Shenango Lake will have the annual Shenango Lake Day on Sept. 29.
During Shenango Lake Day, volunteers work on projects to beautify the park.
These projects include graveling of trails, painting and staining of picnic shelters, planting vegetation, adding wood chips to playgrounds, replacing damaged or worn signs, upgrading or refurbishing campsites and litter pickup.
Volunteers from Shenango Lake Day 2000 put in a total of 2,150 hours of service for the park.
"Without the hard work and dedication of volunteers, many things that need to be done in the park would not get done," corps officials said.
To volunteer or get more information, call (724) 962-7746 or (724) 646-1124.
