ELKINS -

Elkins Mayor Van Broughton has designated Tuesday, "Mayors Day of Recognition for National Service."

Mayors across the country geared up to spotlight the impact of national service.

Broughton recognized the work being done by YouthBuild AmeriCorps, which is building a new storage facility at Glendale Park that also will hold restrooms and concession stands.

"Provide locations for families to get together, sporting events we got a skate park that was much needed, the youth of this town do not have enough activities to keep them occupied and hopefully this will go a little ways towards making that happen," said Raymond Godwin, of YouthBuild.

The storage building should be completed by June.
