Raking, Trail Work and More Kept Volunteers Busy During Fall Cleanup Days

The Highground’s 2020 Fall Cleanup Days kicked off on Thursday morning, October 15. Approximately 30 volunteers worked throughout the 2.5-day event to get the Park prepared for the winter months. The weather, which ranged from sunny to snowy, reminded everyone of the need to prepare for the changing seasons.

Some of the tasks that were tackled included landscape clearing and raking, trail work, picnic table and bench storage and general cleaning. Everyone was taken care of during the work days with homemade meals and a continuous flow of hot beverages and snacks.

Thank you to all the volunteers and supporters. The Highground is grateful for their time and efforts.

Thank you to these local businesses that generously contributed services or items to our Fall Cleanup: Schmitty’s on Main, Ag Country Farm Credit Services and BP / Drescher Oil.

We look forward to seeing everyone again in the coming months for our Veterans Day Ceremony (November 11) and the 8th Annual Winter Bowl (January 31, 2021).
