Belmont High students join Legion Post members in community project

“They freely volunteered to help out and worked hard on a hot, muggy and buggy afternoon.”
“Teens, a lady and men as old as 80 worked side by side, demonstrating real community involvement,” Fogg said.
“It gives students a sense of ownership in their community and helping to develop their understanding of the responsibilities, and rewards, of citizenship,” Fogg said.
The Revitalization Committee is proceeding with the construction of a pavilion next to the Belmont Mill. The long term objective is to develop a public facility for recreation and town events, Fogg said.
“The area is clean, with a couple of green shrubs and some pines strategically remaining, and no slash or trash left. The Tioga River can now be seen from the top of the bank and the old stone tail race from the mill is visible for its entire length. This fits right in with the historical theme and the river view is actually quite scenic.”
“And they certainly did,” a welcome sight for veterans involved in the project, he said.
