Members of the Tamaqua Area Willing and Skate Park volunteer group and other community members made a difference to help the environment over the weekend.

The volunteers spent a good portion of their Saturday removing litter, garbage and debris from the riverbanks and park of the Willing Skate Park. Over 20 bags were filled with collected trash.

When asked why she helped clean, Kim Novak, group vice president, said, "My kids use the park, and we want this place to be a safe and fun area for everyone to enjoy."

Justin Startzel, group president, was thankful for all the volunteers who took the time to help clean up the Tamaqua environment.

Tamaqua Volunteers donated pizza for all the workers.
