CANTON — An AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) team, River 6, is serving with Lake Logan Episcopal Center through Feb. 21. The team began its service on Jan. 12.

The NCCC team of nine members from the Southern Region campus in Vicksburg, Mississippi, will be assisting with repairs of rope weaving chair seats and slat weaving chair backs as well as refurbishing the wood pieces.

The team will also assist the center with completing necessary repairs on site and building access points for all people across generations to experience the natural, recreational and spiritual opportunities that Lake Logan has to offer.

The restorations and upgrades will attract more guests and will ultimately lead to the need for more staff, resulting in increased employment rates in the area.

“The team has worked in the area of infrastructure improvement for past projects, and enjoyed the work immensely,” said Sam Carter, NCCC team leader from Kincheloe, Michigan. “We are a very physical team, and the work of floor installation, masonry and weatherizing cabins is right up our alley.”

The Lake Logan Episcopal Center welcomes all generations by improving the accessibility needs around the facilities. The team is also working to preserve and restore the rich and important history of Lake Logan in Cecil Township.

Moreover, River 6 is looking to inspire the spark of cultural importance in the hearts of those working together on these projects.

River 6 consists of members from around the country. After completing their service with Lake Logan Episcopal Center, the members of the team will deploy to Jackson, Mississippi, for their next service project.
