Members of the New Bedford Royal Neighbors of America, residents of New Bedford and area youth participated in the annual Join Hands Day on May 4. The group cleaned the park shelter in New Bedford and planted flowers in the park. They also planted tomato plants in containers where each child took a tomato plant home. After working in the park, games were played and refreshments were served. Join Hands Day is a national day sponsored by America fraternal benefit societies. It involves relationship building between generations through volunteering.
