United Way Day Of Caring - September 2007

The second United Way of Greater Portsmouth’s Day of Caring for 2007 occurred on September 12th. Thirteen volunteers from Greenwood Heinemann Publishing elected to work at the Park. Six of their team worked to polish up the interior of the boat while the other seven tackled a number of tree, bush and brush clearing projects around the Park grounds. Taking only a short break for lunch, everyone put in a good days work.

Our thanks to the United Way for running such a worthwhile program and to the staff at Greenwood Heinemann for their enthusiasm and hard work.
