Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department teamed up with Hunter First Baptist Church to conduct a “Friends of the Parks Service Day.” This service day took place at Covered Bridge Park and Douglas Park.

“Once again, we feel extremely fortunate to have received help from Hunter First Baptist Church,” said Mike Mains, Parks and Recreation Director. “Working with this congregation has become an annual tradition for us and one that we look forward to every year. Their leadership and the members of this church certainly provide an important mission to our community. We greatly appreciate the time they spent improving two of our park locations and for the dedicated services that impact so many of our park visitors.”

This Friends of the Parks service project included the trimming of trees and shrubs, and the mulching of landscape beds at two popular park locations.
