The city of Echo appreciated the help of about 150 volunteers as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints participated in a Community Services Day.
People of all ages showed up Oct. 10 and donated their labor to accomplish some major projects for the community. Among the tasks completed included placing a new split rail fence around the park, painting the gazebo, digging out old bark on the rose garden and placing new bark.
On Main Street, they pulled weeds and overgrown plants from the circle garden and planted bulbs in them, and weeded the museum park. In the arboretum, they put wood preservative on the gazebo, weeded and placed bark. The museum in Fort Henrietta Park got a fresh coat of paint and debris from fallen cottonwood limbs was disposed of.
City Administrator Diane Berry expressed appreciation for the work done, saying it would have taken city staff a year to complete.
