The City of Miamisburg Parks and Recreation Department will be sponsoring its annual Make a Difference Day project on Thursday, October 21 beginning at 9 a.m. This year, volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks at Sycamore Trails Park. Projects include planting over 6,500 flower bulbs at the main entrance to the park, removing invasive honeysuckle and painting the Nature Center shelter in the park.

Residents of all ages are encouraged to participate (Miamisburg City Schools will not be in session on this date) in Make a Difference Day. No experience is necessary. All materials, equipment and refreshments will be provided by the Parks and Recreation Department. Participants should dress appropriately and meet at Sycamore Trails Park by 9 a.m. Interested volunteers should contact the Parks and Recreation Department at 866-4532 to register and receive additional information including directions to the park. In case of inclement weather, a rain date has been set for Friday, October 22 at the same time and location.

Make a Difference Day is designed to get citizens of all ages and backgrounds involved in their communities. It is the largest national day of volunteering in America. Make a Difference Day Ohio began in 2000. In 2008, over 1,000 projects were completed in the state.
