A great day of service

From page A6 | June 10, 2014 |

On Saturday, April 26, the city of Davis and several community groups organized a Davis Community Day of Service. This event was planned with the goal of uniting residents and engaging in service to the community.

We asked for volunteers and received 200-plus! They worked on projects at Barovetto, Playfields and West Manor parks; CHOC Homestead residence; the downtown area; Montgomery Elementary School; Davis Community Gardens; and the Davis Senior Center. There was also a crew that made their way around town relabeling recycling bins at apartment complexes and replacing “Storm drains to wetlands” markers. They were enthusiastic and worked hard all morning on projects that improved Davis for all residents.

The volunteers exceeded our expectations, thank you all. And our thanks to the city staff who assisted with managing projects and delivering supplies to all the sites.

After working all morning, everyone met for lunch. Our thanks to the Yolo County Elderly Nutrition Program, Nugget Markets, Davis Police Officers Association, Purves Insurance and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which donated lunch, and to the Davis Odd Fellows and Davis Firefighters Local 3494 for preparing and serving lunch.

Special thanks to Sally Plicka, Montgomery Elementary School principal, for hosting the location for the volunteer check-in and lunch, and Tim Nelson and Chris Purves of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Jim Cramer of the United Methodist Church of Davis and Bob Schelen of the Davis Odd Fellows for assisting with event planning.

We hope to see everyone on future projects.
