Yellow Smoke Park selected as Signature Project for "Beautification Day" 03/12/2018


Yellow Smoke Park selected as Signature Project for “Beautification Day”


(Denison, IA) – The fifth annual Crawford County Beautification Day will be taking place on Sunday, April 22nd to celebrate “Earth Day”. The Women in Business Impact Organization of the Chamber & Development Council of Crawford County (CDC) have established this event to invite every citizen to give back to their community. “Not only is this a great opportunity for volunteerism, it is a wonderful way to unite as a community and take pride in the place that we call home,” says Rachel Desy, representative from the Women in Business Impact Organization, “we are very excited to continue this annual event and are very pleased with the momentum we have seen in projects being completed across the entire county.”


The Women in Business Impact Organization (WIBIO) have chosen Yellow Smoke Park area as their signature project to focus on during the fifth annual event. “Our goal this year is to make the event a family friendly service project opportunity,” Desy added, “ we encourage families and volunteers of all ages to take part in this event.”


Volunteers plan to complete several service projects throughout the day to clean up the entire area. The group is planning to have a community lunch for all the volunteers involved. More details will be announced soon.


“We encourage the surrounding towns in Crawford County to adopt a local project to work on to improve their communities. We also encourage any individuals that are not able to participate in the Yellow Smoke Park project to find a way to make a positive impact on their community,” Desy added. “We realize that not all volunteers are able to participate on this particular day, so we ask everyone to find a small way to make a positive impact, whether it is donating a few items to charity, helping a neighbor to tackle a project or contributing money to support a charitable organization.”


“Our goal is to make this event both fun and inspirational,” Desy stated, “It gives us a chance to show our appreciation for the wonderful lifestyle that we are blessed to have and make an effort to improve our community in any way we can.”


Any businesses or individuals wishing to participate or that would like to make donations for project funding or supplies can contact the CDC office.


For more information about the event, contact Rachel Desy at the CDC office at 263-5621 or emailing
