Join us at Staunton River State Park on September 11th beginning at 1p.m. for a cleanup project. It is hard to believe that the attacks on our country happened ten years ago.Sometimes, when I think about the terror of that day, when I stop and let myself really think about how I felt, it seems like yesterday. September 11th is now a Service and Remembrance Day.On this day, communities all over the countrywillcome together to work to make their piece of the world a better place and to remember the lives that were lost in 2001.
Staunton River State Park after tornado
We invite everyone to come on down to the park and help out as we work on our trail system. The trail system was heavily damaged in the tornado that struck the park on April 16th of this year. We will work together to clear small debris from the remaining trails, to repair the drainage systems that were damaged in the storm, and to begin to rebuild some of the sections of trail that were completely destroyed. The cleanup will begin at 1p.m. and we will finish up about 4 p.m.
Come on out to Staunton River State Park and work on the trails. Ponder the events of ten years ago, remember the victims and the heroes of that day, and enjoy the beauty of being alive and outside.
