Eric Becker, a volunteer with the Tamaqua Volunteers Community initiative group, finishes painting the last of five benches at the Depot Square Park in Tamaqua. Volunteers, who purchased the paint and supplies, spent a combined total of about 20 hours scraping, priming and placing two coats of paint on the benches. Volunteers added that they made this project a priority due to Tamaqua's upcoming Summerfest planned for Sunday. To volunteer with the group, call (570) 668-1234.
