Helping to spruce up the parks

Employees from American Standard volunteered their time Wednesday to help with maintenance work in the Salem parks. They painted park benches at Centennial, Waterworth Memorial and W.H. Mullins parks. They also gathered branches felled by storm damage at all three parks and at the city lake. The Parks Dept. expressed gratitude for their assistance.
