Dominion Resources Workers Help Spruce up Jackson's Mill


Jackson’s Mill has been spruced up for the upcoming 4-H camping season with help from Dominion Resources.

More than 100 Dominion workers spent Wednesday at the state 4-H camp in Lewis County revitalizing the grounds. They landscaped flower beds, painted and repaired a gazebo, rebuilt a stone patio and power washed and painted the amphitheater. They also installed a water filtration system in the fish pond.

West Virginia University Extension Service director Steve Bonanno tells The Exponent Telegram that it would take months for the facility’s maintenance staff to do what the Dominion employees did in one day.

Dominion senior policy adviser Robert Orndorff says the company frequently holds meeting and other functions at Jackson’s Mill. He says Dominion has a history of helping the facility.
