The Pocahontas State Park. Service projects will include cemetery restoration, trail and shoreline cleanup, and painting.
The president of FoPSP Thom Flynn sees this weekend as an opportunity to get families involved in a community outreach project to benefit an outdoor recreation area located in the heart of Chesterfield County. “This weekend event benefits the park in a number of ways, but the idea for the event came out of a discussion around how we could get our group together with other volunteers for a fun multi-day event that would include time for us to spend time socially. Our planning team has done a terrific job preparing fun, meaningful projects to benefit many users of Pocahontas State Park.”
According to park manager Dan Quesenberry this service project is another way the Friends group has supported the park throughout the years. He added “the Friends group has assisted the park on several projects throughout the years, from staffing of the museum and nature center to providing support during large special events. They have been a valuable asset to the park since their inception and we look forward to working with this citizen support organization for years to come.”
