Kilen Woods spruced up

LAKEFIELD -- Volunteers added their GreenTouch to Kilen Woods State Park near Lakefield May 7.

Sponsored by Federated Rural Electric in Jackson, eight volunteers helped spruce up Kilen Woods. About 20 Touchstone Energy Cooperatives across the state helped promote a clean-up day at the State Parks.

"We had the best day of spring to be outside enjoying the park and making a difference at the same time," stated Andrea Christoffer, Federated's marketing and communications manager. "Our volunteers picked up downed branches on the trails, campground and picnic area. In addition, we scraped and painted the amphitheater seats, as four weddings will be conducted there this summer. The volunteers also scraped and painted seven campground picnic tables."

The volunteers received a free hot dog lunch and Touchstone Energy work gloves.
