Volunteers Clean Up the Parkway
Submitted by John Hamilton

VolPark imageWell, the government shutdown can't keep the good people of York County and Poquoson down for long. On Saturday, January 19th dozens of volunteers gathered in Yorktown for coffee before they headed up the Colonial Parkway to pick up trash.

Even more impressively, volunteers included furloughed Park Service employees and Coast Guard members. Thank you to Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters, LLC for providing free coffee. Also, thank you to the National Park Service and York County for providing yellow and orange safety vests.

In the end, the volunteers loaded nine pickup truck beds full with bags of trash. Of course, then it was back to Yorktown for some more coffee and some good food. Thank you to everyone who made this volunteer cleanup a possibility over the weekend.
