- “Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers who showed up at Woodlawn Lake Park Centennial Garden on Sunday, March 13! What started out as a chilly morning quickly warmed up under complete sunshine as 26 volunteers worked hard to make Woodlawn Lake Park and the Centennial Garden look beautiful! Weeds were pulled, remaining winter freeze damaged plants were removed, garden borders and walking trails were cleaned up and made more defined, and compost was spread! Great things happen when a team puts forth effort and dedication towards a common goal!” (Nextdoor)
