9/11 Local Army National Guard service day at Spooner Railroad Park

In honor of those who lost their lives on 9/11, Spooner Army National Guard Staff Sgt. David Daley marched his troops to the Spooner Railroad Park to clean the pit under the turntable. His troops were made up mostly of young future soldiers, members of the Recruit Sustainment Program (RSP). Tim Belter and Brad Patchin kindly fed the hungry group amazing brats and hotdogs at the Railroad Memories Museum before they began working. After being greeted by Terri Reiter, Chair of the Railroad Park Board and Secretary/Treasurer of the Friends of the Railroad Park (FORRP) and Jon Alesch, Executive director of FORRP, they picked up tools, jumped down into the pit, and dug out brush, bushes, trees, garbage, metal, glass, and cracked cement pieces all while battling heat, bees, and fatigue. Staff Sgt. Daley had looked for a project to give to others on 9/11, and found a very worthy cause at the Park. He was proud of his recruits, glad to be of service, and hopes to continue a relationship of helping out at the Spooner Railroad Park. https://photos.app.goo.gl/wrAgyHLZvxDHvpaF7
