Middleburgh Residents Gather to Seed New Life at Creekside Park

Written By Editor on 6/6/14 | 6/6/14


The following was submitted by Middleburgh resident Sheila Donegan on a recent event involving the community's Creekside Park located on Baker Avenue. We would like to thank Ms. Donegan for her submission and photos of the local affair:

The torrential rains yesterday (June 3) had at least one beneficial aspect.  Creekside Park on Baker Avenue in Middleburgh got a good soak.  On Saturday, May 31, SAW, Schoharie Area Wild, an organization within SALT, planted donated day lilies of varying colors, 8 lilacs bushes, and other wild flowers along the property lines near the pavilion which recently sported new murals showing fishing and canoeing in the Schoharie Creek.

Village trustees pitched in to help, with Bill Morton rototilling the plant beds, and Lily Bruno digging in clumps of plants. The many volunteers at this project were joined by SALT volunteers doing construction work on the old former library building. Bob Stevenot and Erik Crater, of the Green Iguana Bistro, manned the grills for the BBQ, and donated salads, as did Lisa Tenneson of Four Star Realty.
