Friendship Park area kept tidy

To the editor:

I walk my dog and utilize Friendship Park located around Smithfield, on a daily basis.

I just wanted to shout out a big thank you to the maintenance man who takes care of the park grounds. He always maintains and keeps the grass mowed and weed-eated and trash removed. This is an effort he does by himself, not just at fair time, but every week, year round. I’m sure that no one ever gives him a thank you for doing such a great job.

In today’s work environment, it’s hard to find such good and dedicated laborers. The park board and Jefferson County residents who use these facilities should be grateful to have such an employee.
