PEC volunteers help improve local parks at day of service

Beautification projects completed in Buda, Dripping Springs

On April 6, 11 PEC volunteers stepped up to better the Texas Hill Country by joining the Lower Colorado River Authority’s (LCRA) annual Steps Forward Day, a day of volunteer service.

“Being a part of LCRA Steps Forward Day directly helps the members that we serve,” PEC Member Services Agent Irma Fullilove, who’s a first-time day of service volunteer, said. “Not only was it a great workout, these kinds of events also help build strong relationships with our membership.”

Together, PEC and the LCRA tackled two projects in our service area. In Dripping Springs, volunteers prepared and planted several flowerbeds in the Dripping Springs Sports and Recreation Park. In Buda, volunteers laid chip mulch at playgrounds in town and in Historic Stagecoach Park.

“The whole idea behind a cooperative is working together, and giving back is a wonderful perk our employees have to help our community,” PEC Executive Assistant Susanne Greenseth said. “Whether it be planting flowers for the local park or helping clear brush and such, it’s a wonderful feeling to be able to do something for the people we work for.”
