CLARK—Members of the Kumpf Middle School Builders Club recently joined forces recently with Johnson High School Key Club members and members of the Clark Kiwanis Club to clean up debris and overgrowth in part of the Clark Reservoir.
They also spread hundreds of pounds of mulch supplied by Union County Parks. The Kiwanis family created a mulched pathway up to the flag post that was donated by Clark Kiwanis almost ten years ago under the club presidency of Bernie Yarusavage.
Ron Pask, who coordinated the Kiwanis spring event, thanked the parents, youth, Kiwanis members and Union County for their help. “We want to thank the Adamowitz family for helping all morning long with the two girls and their dad as volunteers,” he said. Additionally, he expressed appreciation of the donation of a new American flag provided by the Clark Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Clark Kiwanis President James Dougherty thanked Pask for coordinating the event that included Matt Pask, a former Key Club president and then Circle K president in college.
“It was a cold, windy Saturday, but Ron Pask got us together as a Kiwanis Family to make a difference in our community,” he said. “That’s what Kiwanis and our young volunteer organizations are all about—giving back.”
