Volunteers from the company Phoenix Contact were at Italian Lake in Harrisburg on Friday morning, armed with their paintbrushes and rollers.

“We’re painting the bathroom at Italian Lake and the outside, we just did the outside and now we’re working on the inside. We get a lot of the repeat volunteers every year that just loves helping the community,” Diana Archambeau of Phoenix Contact said.

Volunteers also helped with projects on City Island, Reservoir Park and neighborhood churches
