Keep Dawson County Beautiful is working to restore the creek at Rock Creek Park and will hold an event this weekend for volunteers who wish to participate in Arbor Day activities.

The group will gather at 8 a.m. Saturday near the soccer fields and work until noon.

A hot dog lunch will be provided for all workers.

The stream is being renovated in honor of the late David Hinderliter, former president of the Dawson County Tree Preservation Society.

A commemorative bench will be unveiled and stones and trees will be planted in Hinderliter's honor. Light refreshments will be served after a ceremony at 1 p.m.

An invitation to the day's events states that the Dawson County Tree Preservation Committee is partnering with Keep Dawson County Beautiful in celebration of Arbor Day, which is this Friday.

Those who wish to volunteer are asked to RSVP at or call (706) 344-3500, Ext. 42334.

Those participating should bring their own work gloves and clothes that can get dirty.
