A day of caring Volunteers build, beautify in county By GORDON WEEKS gordon@madoncoun com On Tuesday, members of the Shelton Kiwanis Club cleaned and painted picnic tables at Loop Field in downtown Shelton. Up the hill, members of the Krist- mastown Kiwanis brightened the town's entryway at Overlook Park by planting flowers at the log monument sign. Simultaneously, volunteers were cutting brush at Sunset Bluff Park, pulling weeds at the Theler Community Center, building a weather station wall in the Pioneer School garden and organizing supplies at the soon-to-be opened Mason County Shelter. In all, 23 projects were completed during United Way of Mason County's sixth annual Day of Caring. Project volunteers gathered for instructions at 8 a.m. Tuesday at Kneeland Park, and then fanned out throughout the county. The volunteer efforts help beautify and maintain city sites, including Loop Field, Shelton Creek and Overlook Park, said Mark Ziegler, director of the city of Shelton Parks and Recreation Department. "It's an opportunity to knock out some of the things we can't get to, and move us into summer," he said. Planting flowers at Overlook Park is an annual gift from the Kristmastown Kiwanis Club, which bought the flowers from the Future Farmers of America stu- dents at Shelton High School, Ziegler said.
