Beechwood Clean up

Beechwood Park, Hillsdale (June 3, 2017)

Thanks to the hard work of volunteers from the Pascack Bible Church and donations from Kuiken Brothers, Beechwood Park in Hillsdale has a bright refreshed look and is ready for summer! Hillsdale residents can now enjoy hiking on the freshly cleared, mulched trails and then relax for a quiet lunch using the rebuilt picnic tables as a result of a clean up done on June 3rd.

The event, sponsored by the Hillsdale Environmental Commission, is becoming a tradition. Frank Pizzella, Hillsdale Councilman and Environmental Commission Liaison, was quick to point out that this is what makes Hillsdale unique.

“It is wonderful to see the community pull together for a project like this. It is a beautiful day with special people making our community a better place. Couldn’t be nicer!”

The volunteers from Pascack Bible Church included over 50 adult and youth congregation members, some of whom also helped with planning and preparing food for the event.

Donations of the lumber used for repairs came from the efforts of Jeff Henig at Kuiken Brothers.
