Volunteers wanted for cleanup at Aurora Recreation Center

AURORA, N.C. (WITN) - Some softball and baseball fields are getting a makeover and you're invited to help with the project.

With a nearly $150,000 grant from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, Aurora, in Beaufort County, will renovate the fields near downtown in an effort to increase opportunities for youth to be active and engaged in community activities.

Community members are invited to come out and help this Saturday and next Saturday from 7-10 a.m. at the Aurora Recreation Complex.

The idea to renovate the fields came out of a community meeting last year where people shared their concerns about how local youth spend their free time and what might be done to address local gang activity.
