Ariel-Foundation Park will hold a spring clean-up event on Saturday, May 20, for community members and organizations or groups interested in volunteering to pick up trash and weed mulch beds.
Foundation Park Conservancy is inviting local bands and non-profit organizations to propose benefit concert partnerships this summer in the Schnormeier Event Center.
"In addition to a diverse schedule of free weekend concerts, featuring an all-new lineup of regionally and nationally touring bands, the Conservancy is accepting proposals for up to four Thursday night concerts, showcasing the talents of well-established local bands or other musical ensembles, and benefiting charitable organizations," according to Conservancy Events Chair Sam Barone.
Ariel-Foundation Park is gearing up for an active 2017 season and is looking for volunteers to fill a variety of roles, some of which include serving at the Urton Clock House Museum, at concerts, at the Rastin Challenge and throughout the park performing landscaping and cleanup.
