Members of the Daleville Chamber of Commerce and Daleville High School's JROTC program teamed up on Friday, Feb. 5, to start cleaning up the city's local dog park in preparation for the spring.Volunteers removed sand from the brick entry to the park, picked weeds and cleaned up any trash or wood particles."The Chamber appreciates the JROTC, along with Lt. Col. Chris Miller and Sgt. 1st Class Richard Austin, for their help today," Chamber President Steve Drown said.According to Drown, the Chamber is working with the Lovely Touch Garden Club to determine types of plants to place in the park.Donor signs received a new paint job, and benches in the park received a coat of primer as well."It's time to start doing things (to clean up the park)," Drown said about preparing the park for the spring season. "The nicer you make it, the more they come."
