GILBERTSVILLE, Ky. – Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park will hold its “Ides of March Spring Cleanup” on Saturday, March 15.

 

With the start of spring just a few days away, the park is looking for volunteers to come out and pick up trash starting at 9 a.m. at the old beach parking lot. The cleanup will last until noon. A bonfire and hotdog and hamburger roast will be held for volunteers at the Marina Pavilion.

 

This event is co-sponsored by the Friends of Kentucky Dam Village. This is a great opportunity for church groups, scouts and others to help beautify the park in time for the spring season. Volunteers should wear appropriate clothing and gloves for cleaning and weather.

 

Groups interested in sending volunteers should contact Laura Jackson at 270-362-4271, ext. 412 or email laura.jackson@ky.gov.

 

Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park sits near the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. The park at Gilbertsville features a lodge, cottages, marina, campground, golf course, convention center and full-service restaurant.
