Galeton Rotary To Place New Benches In Collins Memorial park and around Berger Lake.

The Galeton Rotary Club had the Galeton High School shop class construct 10 new park benches. These will be placed in the Collins Memorial park and around the Berger Lake.

In the 1970's the club had park benches made up with flower planters on each end. The club annually would repair, restain and store these benches for the winter. Faithfully Jean and Pete Folk would plant flowers in the planters and keep them weeded and watered all summer long. Not an easy task but it helped add to the beauty of the park and the beautiful Berger Lake. The original benches needed to be replaced.

This summer the new benches were placed around the lake. Several more will be added in the spring. Sadly one was already thrown in the lake. Thanks to the excellent borough crew it was taken from the lake and has been saved.

Hopefully these very nice benches will be allowed to stay in place for many years to come.
