This coming Saturday, May 3, Friends of East Sacramento and the McKinley Park Volunteer Corps will host a volunteer day at McKinley Park. But before work begins, volunteers will be treated to a volunteer appreciation breakfast at 8:80am. At 9, a rose deadheading training session for new volunteers will be followed swiftly by pruning rose bushes in McKinley Rose Garden and trimming, raking and otherwise tidying up the park.
Some supplies will be provided, but volunteers are still asked to bring their own pair of gardening gloves, and clippers and/or rakes if they have them. While drop-ins are appreciated, RSVPs are encouraged. To sign up or get more information, either email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (916) 452-8011.
