Nymore, Otto Schmunk parks target of cleanup today

BEMIDJI - Volunteers interested in cleaning up Bemidji parks are asked to report today to Nymore Park instead of the Lake Bemidji waterfront.

Previously, volunteers were requested to help cleanup Library and Paul Bunyan parks, but those parks appear to be in good shape.

Volunteers are asked to check-in at the Nymore Park tennis courts off of Miles Avenue between 8 a.m. and noon. Efforts will focus on Nymore and Otto Schmunk parks.

For details, call Tina at 308-3780.
