Friends of Roosevelt Park seek volunteers

Friends of Roosevelt Park are looking for volunteers to help scrape, prime and paint the world’s largest porch swing. The VIP (volunteers improving parks) event is scheduled to take place this Friday, June 20 at 1 p.m., and Saturday, June 21 at 9 a.m. Free lunch will be served by the City.

Individuals, groups or clubs are welcome – there is no set schedule; however, volunteers are asked to let the group know if you plan to help so that lunches can be ordered. Simply call Amanda’s Cottage at 402-768-6121.

Friends of Roosevelt Park also ask that volunteers bring paint brushes, scrapers, tarps and ladders with them. Light poles in the park will need a fresh coat of paint, too.

Work has begun on the porch for the swing and barring any major weather issues, the porch is hoped to be completed by Hebron’s Fourth of July celebration.
