On April 29, Paul Bafia, executive director of the Genoa Park District, invited the Genoa Lions and other community members to spruce up playgrounds in Genoa during Park Volunteer Day. The Lions started at 8:30 a.m. with Lions Corner Park at Madison and Walnut streets, spreading new wood chips under all of the playground equipment. In past years, weeds and unwanted scrub trees have been removed on Spruce-Up day, but not this wet and rainy Saturday. The following Lions participated in the event: René VanDerHeyden and his daughter, Annie VanDerHeyden, Paul Bafia, Jerry Helland, Jim Sanford, Mike Dreska and his son, James, Mike Ross and Bob Becker.
