Volunteers Help with Spring Cleanup
Posted on 05.14.15 in Events, News

The winter months are finally behind us and the lush green grass, blossoming flowers, and budding trees have begun to reveal themselves as the summer months approach. Yesterday, a group of volunteers and staff members worked together to clean up our grounds by picking up trash, digging up weeds, laying down new soil, trimming trees and flower bushes, and raking leaves. Although it was a slightly chilly day, with the sun shining and mini Hershey’s chocolates and Kit-Kat bars to satisfy our taste buds, it made for an enjoyable and productive evening!

I would like to thank the following volunteers who participated in the Spring Cleanup: Gwen Timmons, Elizabeth Wayne (and her son), Kristi Link, and Erin Stilwell. Their willingness to help in any way is just one of the many reasons I am proud of our volunteers and all they do for Lake Superior Hospice and our community.
