Calling all volunteers!

September 29, 2006

Thomasville-  More than 900 volunteers will be as busy lending their hand to various projects for Hands on Thomas County.  Saturday, volunteers will work on 25 different community improvement projects across the County. 

Projects will include beautification at local parks, community schools, and even a wheelchair access ramp for one homeowner. 

"They're going to be building two different gazebos here as well as cleaning up a nature walkway as well as preparing some beds for planting that will be going in later when it's the proper time of year to be doing that," said Alston Watt, Hands On Thomas Co. Board Chairwoman. 

It's not too late to get involved.  You can just show up at Cherokee Lake Park. Projects will start at 9:00 a.m. and a celebratory lunch will be held in the park around noon.
