I had the privilege of attending the opening ceremony for the Steinmetz Park pavilion this afternoon. Thanks to the hard work of many volunteers over 7 years and grants from both the state and county, Goose Hill has been able to greatly improve the quality of Steinmetz Park.
The ribbon cutting ceremony featured a wonderful lunch of fried chicken with many sides provided by neighbors and a make your own sundae from Stewarts! They also had face painting for the kids and raffles to help raise more money for the park’s master plan.
After the ribbon was cut, food consumed, and most of the press and politicians had left, the association honored several people for their volunteer work. One woman was honored for her work with the pavilion, another for picking up trash in the neighborhood. I wish I had the names of each awardee with a brief statement signifying what they were honored for, but it’s these people who help make the quality of life better for everyone one of the great signs of a community bettering itself.
Steinmetz park is looking great, and I can’t wait to see how it improves over the years through the continuing efforts of community volunteers.
