McCarthy calls for help to clean up Sc'tady's Central Park

SCHENECTADY, N.Y.-- Schenectady's acting mayor Gary McCarthy is looking for some good volunteers that are willing to help clean up Schenectady's Central Park.

The parking lot near the ball parks currently looks like a landfill, and all of the snow removed from many of the city streets that were once piled in the park, have left quite a mess.

Volunteers are now being asked to come out to the park next week to make it beautiful once again and the idea is getting a lot of support.

"I think it's a good idea for everyone to pitch in and help," said Craig Doherty, of Schenectady. "Obviously there's a problem with the economy and I think we should help in any manner that we can."

"I think it's great," said Paul Miller, who enjoys the park. "I think volunteers like to do stuff like that."

The day of service is scheduled for this Saturday, May 14th. Volunteers are being asked to come down to the park starting at 10am.

Supplies will be provided and the trash will all be piled up and then city crews will actually haul it away.

That one lot over by the baseball field is really bad. The city dumped snow full of garbage this winter now the park is left with a ton of trash.

40-50 people showed up and the lot is clean as can be !!!! Bagels, breakfast burritos and pizza all provided by Union Street buisnesses.

Played the front 9 with Kenji, Greg & Bob Hoffman after.

That lot is all cleaned up now. Nice to see all the volunteers out there. Dan Basile(sp) was out from channel 13 I tried to get my discap tee in some of the interviews he was doing. Got to talk with the new mayor a little bit. All good press for us! Nice to see Larry Millen out as well only non BOD member to come help us out. Thanks Larry!

There should be at least one DisCap shirt on film that makes it past the editor. I was also working the lens for photo ops. My luck it'll be a shot of me eating pizza.

Long shots of Bob working early in the video...... Closeup of a DisCap-shirt-wearing Kenji in the pizza line and me eating(as predicted) also.
