Work day planned

NATCHEZ — For locals looking for a way to give back to the community, several local groups are looking for help cleaning up Duncan Park in Natchez on Saturday.

Beginning at 8:30 a.m., approximately 70 volunteers with the Master Gardeners, workers from the Natchez recreation department and the Cathedral High School football team will tackle neglected areas of the park with shears and trash bags.

Adams County Extension Agent David Carter said there are some neglected places around the golf course and tennis courts that can look better, and the entranceway is grown up with weeds and briars.

The group plans to work until 11 a.m., and Carter said anyone else who wants to help is welcome.

“It will be a quick day, and with so many people it makes the job quicker,” Carter said. “Everyone has a place to fit in. It helps to have extra hands cutting pruning and cleaning up. Feel free to bring lawn and garden tools.”

Alderman Dan Dillard wanted to beautify Duncan Park, but needed assistance, while Coach Ron Rushing was looking for a service project for his players, Carter said.

“They hit at the same time, and Duncan Park is the landmark of Adams County recreation,” Carter said. “Master Gardeners will provide the expertise, the football team will be the workforce and the city recreation workers will be there to help out too. Anyone who wants to make a difference is welcome to join.”
