Swagelok volunteers take over Euclid Beach Park
On Wednesday July 18th, 65+ employees from the Swagelok Continuous Improvement Team descended on Euclid Beach Park for a volunteer projects day. These guys are all hands-down the best group of volunteers we have ever had at Euclid Beach State Park, period (no offense to all of our other volunteers)! Not even the extreme heat and the threat of thunderstorms deterred them from making improvements to Euclid Beach! Between a well-groomed beach, 30 freshly painted green benches, a cleared Euclid Beach fountain and pier, 150 planted flowers and more, Euclid Beach Park hasn’t looked this good in at least 20 years!
On behalf of Euclid Beach Adopt-a-Beach volunteers and Collinwood residents, we cannot thank you all enough for your hard work last Wednesday! Check out pictures from throughout the day to see the amazing progress on our Facebook page at facebook.com/AdoptEuclidBeach/photos! Many thank yous also to BVU’s Roseanne Deucher and Brian Broadbent, Denise Lorek from Northeast Shores, Jon Frato and the folks from Euclid Beach Park Now, Hyle Lowry with the Alliance For The Great Lakes, Roger and Deon from the State Park maintenance staff and Dave Roswurm for his amazing brush cutting ability! The park really looked great for the Euclid Beach Blast last Saturday and it was an awesome way to showcase all the hardwork of the Swagelok team!
