Community Service

On Saturday February 18, 2023,  Friends of the Park partnered with the City of Roxboro for their First Annual February Flower Fling. They distributed over 5,000 bulbs to several organizations in the community to assist in beautifying Person County! Friends of the Park received over 200 bulbs and reorganized and planted our bulbs on the roadside at Huck Sansbury Park, be on the lookout for blooms!
