Assemblyman Andy Goodell, R-C-I-Chautauqua County, will join Parks and Trails New York and local volunteers at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 4, for "I Love My Park Day" at Midway State Park.
"I Love My Park Day" provides volunteers a way to give back to New York state parks while also promoting the affordability and close proximity of many of the state parks during the upcoming summer travel season.
"New York offers a wide variety of state parks, all of which provide outstanding recreational activities all summer long. Midway State Park especially provides families with young children the chance to spend a day at an amusement park without bearing the cost associated with many of the other major parks," Goodell said. "Last year's 'I Love My Park Day' was a tremendous success and I'm pleased to see it return again this year. The volunteers and staff did an outstanding job sprucing up the park and preparing it for the upcoming season."
During the daylong event, volunteers will be providing a range of services to help better prepare the park for the season. Those attending are asked to bring garden gloves, water, a snack and lunch. Volunteers of all ages are encouraged to attend.
