In a special proclamation, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett endorsed April 27 as a day to volunteer in the parks and forests in the commonwealth. “I commend all those involved in organizing this initiative. I hope that the dedication and leadership demonstrated by these participants motivates and inspires other citizens.” Throughout Pennsylvania, Delaware and parts of Maryland and New York, community friends worked together to improve publicly used rest and recreation areas.

This day of service was sponsored by Mormon Helping Hands, which is a program directed by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where volunteers partner with government and nonprofit organizations to support and improve the communities where they live.

Sideling Hill picnic area was cleaned of the fall and winter debris on Saturday by the Mc- Connellsburg Branch of the church, working hand-in-hand with Needmore

Scout Troop #45.

The Scout troop is sponsored by the Needmore Community Center, and is part of the Mason- Dixon, MD Council and the Great Cove, PA District. The Sideling Hill State Forest picnic area is part of Buchanan State Forest and is funded by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources under the PA Bureau of Forestry, which manages and protects our state forests and promotes the wise stewardship of these beautiful resources.
