About 80 volunteers came together earlier in May to refresh the 21-year-old Children’s Park in Medora, ND. From staining wood to raking rubber mulch, HEI’s Nic Cullen and his family made this a multi-generational volunteer opportunity.
Nic’s grandfather was part of the original group of people to build the Children’s Park. When Nic saw the call for help to refurbish the park, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work on it alongside his grandfather. “I called my dad, called grandpa up, and said ‘you know what? let’s go do this,'” Nic Cullen said. “And so my kids, I have three kids now, they always want to go to “Grandpa’s park” once we get to Medora so that’s always our first stop when we get into town.”
This volunteer effort was shared in several media outlets. Read more about this story in the links below.
