Henryetta, Oklahoma — Union volunteers in the Henryetta Area will volunteer their time and trade skills through the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) Work Boots on the Ground (WBG) program to complete one final project at Nichols Park in Henryetta, Oklahoma, that will increase public access to the park and lake. To celebrate the newly restored park, the USA will host a family fishing day and a formal dedication following the completion of the project.
