The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance, American Water Charitable Foundation, union leaders and volunteers dedicated a restored 1950s fishing pier at Jones Point Park on Nov. 3. Mayor Allison Silberberg and fourth grade students from Lyles Crouch Traditional Academy took part in the dedication ceremony.
In support of the 100th Work Boots on the Ground conservation project of the Sportsmen’s Alliance, volunteers donated 864 hours to restore the fishing pier.
American Water awarded a grant of $22,500 for the project, which was also supported by Smoot Lumber, Culpeper Wood Preservers, Simpson StrongTie, Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation, Guest Services Inc. and Ullico. The full project value was $50,000.
