Cleanup Day Scheduled For April 22 At Island Park In Winfield

An annual community-wide cleanup at Island Park in Winfield is scheduled for later this month.

Members of Grace United Methodist Church have established the tradition of celebrating Earth Day by picking up trash and readying Island Park for residents and visitors to enjoy nature this spring and summer. The cleanup day is set for 2 p.m. April 22.

No registration is required and anyone is welcome to attend and help out.

Just show up at Island Park that Sunday afternoon. Volunteers will gather at the north end of the park at one of the pullouts.

Wear old clothes and old shoes. Bring work gloves and if you have them, bring rakes.

Organizers said the church organizes an Earth Day event to maximize comprehensive environmental stewardship.
