Kentucky Parks Commissioner On Hand
For Pass It On Volunteer Day
Kentucky Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker says Lake Barkley State Resort Park will receive extra attention this year thanks to the community commitment shown by the Pass It On Project. Walker was at the park to thank more than 170 volunteers for their service and make the announcement.
Walker compared the volunteer effort at the park to the dedication of her mother, who passed away Friday night at the age of 91.
Following the opening remarks, volunteers split into teams to begin tackling projects that ranged from painting picnic tables at the Boots Randolph Golf Course, to scooping sand off the walkway at the Barkley Beach, cleaning up driftwood and debris at the marina and planting flowers and roses along the entrance to the main lodge.
