RENSSELAER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Congressman Chris Gibson joins the boy scouts from Rensselaer County at Grafton Park for 'I Love My Park Day.'
The group was picking up trash and tree limbs getting the picnic area ready for summer. They took part in a handful of events Saturday to get the park in better shape as the summer camping season is right around the corner.
Chris Gibson, of the 20th congressional district said, “Well were doing what we used to call in the army a police call, which basically means you get in a double line interval and move towards the waterline and pick up any trash that's currently here at the park, so you know it helps beautify our park."
Gibson said "I Love My Park" day is not only focused on cleaning the park, but aims to build self improvement and the desire to make a difference in the community.
