Volunteers gathered Saturday morning to help make Salina a better place to live.
Volunteers of all ages gathered to tackle a variety of community service projects during the annual Fall Fix-Up project.
Activities began at Founders’ Park, behind the Salina Community Theatre. Volunteers then spread out to work on projects.
Projects included construction and distributing rain barrels, Smoky Hill River channel cleanup near the Iron Street Bridge, and removing trash and spent vegetation from downtown planters, alleys, and parking lots. Volunteers also helped with interior and exterior painting, landscaping, and other fix-up projects for several community service organizations.
The Fall Fix-Up effort was a collaborative effort of The Volunteer Connection, Serving Salina Together, the Salina Community Action for Renewing the Environment (CARE) Partnership, the City of Salina’s Department of Planning and Community Development, and the recipient agencies.
