Americorps VISTA honors 9/11 by helping keep a Monongalia park clean. Volunteers from around the state joined with the Friends of Decker Creek today for a day of service. The group painted picnic tables and benches, spread mulch along pathways and removed unsightly weeds.

“Big service days like 9/11 and Martin Luther King are the two big service days for Americorps VISTAs and I think it’s important to remember community and how important that is and when you get a group of people who are like minded and all working together whether it’s in our park or another organization I just think it helps the community realize, ‘hey there’s people out here who care’,” said AmeriCorps VISTA member Maddie Ferrell.
