The Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department received great help from the Centrifuge Camp recently held at Milligan University. Dozens of students participated in the MFUGE portion of camp to help assist the Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department with a variety of maintenance projects throughout our park system.
MFUGE places an emphasis on community missions. While at the camp, students choose from a variety of ministry areas, including working with children, leading games and recreation, painting, construction and yardwork, and participating in social ministry such as working with clothing closets and food banks, nursing homes, and homeless shelters. Students spend the day involved in these projects, then return to camp that night for worship, fellowship, and church group time.
“It was a pleasure working with these wonderful volunteers,” said Mike Mains, Parks and Recreation Director. “We certainly appreciate their hard work during very difficult hot weather conditions. It was a wonderful reflection of their faith and willingness to make a difference in the lives of our citizens. We are very grateful for all those that took part in this program.”
The Parks and Recreation Maintenance staff’s collaboration with the volunteers also played a crucial role in the success of these projects. The volunteers contributed their time and efforts to various improvement projects throughout the Parks and Recreation system. Their work included painting picnic pavilions at Douglas and Kiwanis Parks, enhancing landscape beds at the Northeast Community Credit Union Stadium, Covered Bridge, Douglas, and Kiwanis Parks, and painting buildings and walls at the Elizabethton Recreation Center. We were thrilled to have their help as these improvements will benefit the community for years to come.
