Volunteers from Thankful Thursdays will gather from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Meadville Area Recreation Complex skate park in hopes of improving the facility’s maintenance and longevity.
Organizer John Hartnett hopes to apply some “Meadville green” paint to the structures in the park as well as planting sunflower seeds left over from the recent “Sunflower Dash” along the perimeter of the park.
“We’ll be putting down a couple of coats (of paint) just to spruce up the place,” Hartnett said.
Thankful Thursdays events are free and open to the public. Some paintbrushes, rollers and other equipment will be available, but participants are also welcome to take their own to the event, according to organizers.
