The Waconia Lions Club hosted an event to help the Carver County parks CLEAN UP CONEY ISLAND.

In order for the Carver County parks to open a park to the public on Coney Island, there was much cleanup that had to be done.

In October of 2021, the Waconia Lions hosted the first Clean Up Coney event. All of the Lions clubs in Carver County were invited to come and help clean up the island. We had members of the Cologne Lions and the Waconia Dandy Lions help with this clean up effort.

During this event the clubs cleaned out the remnants from a couple of the old building sites and also planted 140 sumac.

Again in June 2022, on one of the hottest days of the year, the Waconia Lions club hosted the second of these events. On this evening we cleaned up additional building sites, again with the help of the Cologne Lions and the Waconia Dandy Lions.

Thanks to all that could help!
