Marywood University students, alumni, staff and family members recently volunteered to help clean up Nay Aug Park. Organized by The Greenhouse Project, and Debbie A. Frable Welby and Paul Welby, Memorial Rose Garden chairpersons, the Marywood volunteers assisted with work on two areas for new flower beds and benches.
The volunteers cleaned, weeded, raked, and bagged more than sixty bags of leaves, and they spread two truckloads of red mulch.

Dunmore’s Keystone UNICO donated $500 to the Northeast Suicide Prevention Initiative’s “Share the Journey Drive” fundraiser at Nay Aug Park as part of their ongoing community support during this COVID-19 Pandemic.
This was appropriate because so many have been under an unusual amount of emotional stress for over six months with this pandemic. Donations can made on line at their website www.northeastsuicidepreventioninitiative.org.
Shown at the check presentation are Tom Carlucci, Keystone board member; President Mike Nelson and Vice President Kathy Wallace of the Northeast Suicide Prevention Initiative; Keystone Chapter President Mary Ann Coviello, Board Chairman Frank Coviello, UNICO PA II District Governor Cathy Bianchi, Michele McDade and Mark McDade, all Keystone UNICO Board Members.
Nay Aug Park was the setting for a UNICO Service Day by members of UNICO Scranton Chapter who helped to clean up the park.
