The Red Bridge's reflection was even shinier Saturday after St. Johns Lutheran Church parishoners gave it a fresh coat of paint. Dozens of parishoners fanned out throughout Park Rapids in a day of community service. "Blitz Park Rapids" volunteers re-painted the bridge, the playground equipment at several parks, visited residents at Heritage Living Center, picked up garbage at the transfer station and spruced the town up. At right, from left, Matt Kaufenberg, Jerry Eischens and Dustin Bethel applied their paintbrushes to the playground equipment at Deane Point. Not pictured is Linne Strandemo Sargent. Other crews were busy chain sawing tree debris and removing it from public areas.
