Thanks to a report from County Councilman Bob Weiner, we’ve learned that with the help of record amounts of volunteers, the semi-annual Talley Day County Bark Park Citizens Maintenance Day was another resounding success this year. According to Councilman Weiner, “thanks to 85 volunteers including students, boy scouts, girl scouts and other adult volunteers, this volunteer project that normally takes 2 to 4 hours was finished in record timeā€¦one hour! This volunteerism helps lessen the burdens on government at our time of need. Thank you to those who brought their own rakes, pitchforks and wheel barrows.”

“The Friends of Talley Day Park is registered with New Castle County Pride, our 501 c 3, such that in kind and financial contributions can be earmarked for the benefit of the park. Our two major activities are the Spring and Fall Clean Up at the Bark Park.”

“County Executive Paul Clark joined us today and provided both inspiration and his personnel management skills. A special thank you to Suzanne Mannes for contacting all the school groups. Thank you Boy Scout Troop 67, Troop Pack 527, Bank of America, students from Mt Pleasant High School, Brandywine High School, Talley Middle School and Concord High School National Honor Societies, Key Clubs and other groups.”
