Park cleanup a chore from the heart

May 30, 2011

WAKARUSA — Town representatives and community members gathered May 21 at the Wakarusa Park downtown to do some sprucing up.

Signs reading No Parking 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. will be posted at the site. This new restriction will be in effect seven days a week on a permanent basis.
