Ocean Beauty workers improve Hungry Point Trail
Ocean Beauty donated the labor of these employees to help spread gravel along Hungry Point Trail.
Workers from Ocean Beauty Seafood took time to help Petersburg Parks and Recreation by improving the Hungry Point Trail.
“Cheryl Romeo approached Glorianne Wollen, who sent her to me,” Petersburg Parks and Recreation Director Donn Hayes said. “They were like receiving manna from heaven.”
Hayes explained he and his department members had been trying to figure out a way to improve the trails in the area but were unable to get to them.
“We had a little extra funds,” Hayes said. “It cost us about $2,000 to get the rock, but it was well worth every penny.”
Some days there were 14 people from Ocean Beauty working on this project. The workers were already experienced on the equipment and the trail is easier to traverse now.
“My wife and I were able to look up and enjoy the scenery instead of watching for the rocks at our feet,” Harvey Gulliland said. “Everyone should go check out the trail, it is now a joy to walk.”
Hayes explained that the Hungry Point Trail is one of the most used trails in the community.
“I can't say enough about this Ocean Beauty crew,” he said. “They didn't have to do this, except for their own desire to improve the community and I thank them deeply for every moment of their help.”
