PRUDENVILLE – Trestle Park in Prudenville hosted its annual “Wake up the Park Clean Up Day” recently.
Friends of Trestle Park (FOTP) Board members Bob and Mary Michela, Sharon Andre`, and Patricia Inman, as well as community volunteers Ed Wojtan, Mike Carolan, Sheryl Lamphier, Houghton Lake National Honor Society students Kayla & Krista Doehring, Debra Marzka, Mary Dicker, and Tom Weir made up the bulk of the crew. They worked from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. cleaning up debris, cutting the grass, clearing out the flower beds and generally “spruced up” the area, according to Mary Michela.
FOTP provided a pizza lunch for the volunteer clean-up crew when the event wrapped up.
Michela said trash was disposed of properly. Everyone practiced social distancing and wore a mask when necessary in order to work within COVID-19 protocols.
“Many thanks to everyone who worked so hard to get the park ready for the summer!” Michela added.
