Young Life group partners with LO Parks & Rec's stewardship program to complete service project for third year in a row

Rossman Park now shines brightly thanks to the elbow grease from 74 volunteers with Young Life Capernaum.

Young Life Capernaum gives young people with mental and physical disabilities the chance to experience fun and adventure, to develop fulfilling friendships and to challenge their limits while building self-esteem through clubs, camps and other exciting activities including service projects like the one they completed May 7.

These energetic volunteers partnered with Parks Stewardship to remove invasive species, planted colorful flowers and washed play structures at Rossman Park.

According to the City of Lake Oswego's Stewardship Coordinator Babs Hamachek, this is the third year in a row Young Life Capernaum has given back to the community by helping to maintain Rossman Park.

An added bonus for Rossman Park was the hands on help from parents and aides that accompanied these hard working volunteers.

"Parks stewardship is grateful to Capernaum for the spring cleaning help at Rossman Park," Hamachek said.
