While walking laps around the hospital's Legacy Park, Greg Hambrick noticed a lot of tornado debris still scattered over the area. The grounds crew was unable to mow the grass. 

Hambrick knew what to do to help the hospital and give a meaningful experience to his church youth group at the same time  - put teenagers on the cleanup task.

So it was that on June 21,  a dozen participants in Lads 2 Leaders at Marietta Church of Christ bagged and piled limbs and refuse onto a trailer and hauled it away.

"This is one of those little projects, really, but it's going to be a lot of help to the hospital and Legacy Park to get back to normal," Hambrick said.

Youth participants were Dovie Banta, Jackson Banta, Adelynn Bridgeman, Blayden Bridgeman, Hannah Bridgeman, Kendall Bridgeman, Layla Bridgeman,  Kylie Frazier, Kynzlee Frazier, Andrew Green, Amelia Green, and Claire McGehee.

Adult sponsors were Erin Banta, Sunni Bridgeman, Ky and Kathy Frazier, Chase Green, Greg Hambrick, Shawna McGehee, and Allen Woody
