Thursday, July 13, the Michigan State Police Youth Academy came to Artesia to help do building maintenance!
We really appreciated volunteer help. All our board and staff is made up of volunteers who believe they are making a difference in the community. Every student who comes and plays, every adult who watches a IWE Wrestling match or plays pickleball agree that Artesia Youth Park is a great place to come and enjoy healthy fun.
We want to thank you for volunteering!
