“What an uplifting way to end your week,” exclaimed Kentucky Department of Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker.
And because of the volunteer efforts, the state park will receive extra funding and attention from the state.
Beth Mann of WKDZ says she and others involved with Leadership Trigg hope the project will result in a renewed pride in the state park. With 202 people who actually logged in, and several others who didn’t but showed up for work, there were probably about 225 people out there, not counting the City, County and local farming staff who worked prior, which would probably put that number at above 250, she said.
With all of the available manpower, Mann described involvement in the Saturday event as “over the top.”
“We would like to make this an annual event, it’s something that needs to happen from year to year,” said Mann. “I don’t know that it will be grand scale, where we’re doing the whole park. We’ll probably target specific areas that the park needs extra help on, but there’s no question that it was successful for every party involved.”
