These young adults are just a small portion of those who showed up at WINN Job Center in Louisville, MS to apply for various positions at Dean Park and in the Center Ridge Community through the National Emergency Grant (NEG). Dean Park was devastated by its loss of the beautiful pine trees that encompassed the park which left a lot of debris in the park. There were other damaged areas also. These employee will be working for 6 months to help clear the debris from the damaged areas of the park as well as the surrounding public area in the Center Ridge Community. They are forbidden to work on private property. Supervisor Gloria Turnipseed, Dean Park Commission and Friends of Dean Park, Inc. are working in partnership on this special project. For further information, please contact your local WINN Job Center.
