As part of a community grant, the Dycusburg Community Group will be building a youth park in town within the next 1-2 months. For starters, the group desperately needs volunteers for labor to help construct and place playground equipment. Please consider investing your time in the youth of the area by helping. If you're interested, please call the DCG at 988-2758.
