Volunteers Needed to Rake Leaves at Blue Limestone Park

Share This Post

To combat the unsightly side of autumn, the City of Delaware is calling for volunteers to rake leaves at Blue Limestone Park.

“Fall leaves are beautiful on trees, but once they hit the ground, they become intolerable filth that must be eradicated at any cost,” said Parks and Recreation Director Ted Miller, demonstrating his point by grinding a fallen leaf under his boot and spitting on it in disgust. “Due to budget cuts, we couldn’t tackle Blue Limestone’s leaves ourselves this year, so we’re enlisting residents to help keep Delaware beautiful.”

The City has scheduled the leaf-gathering effort for 5 pm on Wednesday, November 22nd. Volunteers are asked to bring a pair of gloves. Rakes and biodegradable leaf bags will be provided. Once filled, the bags will be placed at the back of the park, where the leaves will be allowed to decompose without blighting the landscape.
