Six Flags America,  once again mobilized its workforce this November for Project 6, the Six Flags Entertainment Corporation’s annual service event. Full-time and seasonal employees beautified Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis, MD on Thursday, November 10, painting the park’s gazebos along the South River Overlook and front entrance, building and installing bluebird and wren houses, replacing the handrail at the Harness Creek Boat Dock, and repairing the Pond Bridge.

“Six Flags employees are a group of driven, task-oriented people who demonstrated a commitment to their community through direct service volunteering,” said Nicki Fiocco, Volunteer Maryland Coordinator for Quiet Waters Park. “Direct service volunteering provides valuable help to agencies in need of support. We are grateful to Six Flags America and Project 6 for partnering with Quiet Waters Park.”

“Through Project 6, Six Flags America effects change in our community, in places where we, ourselves, work and play” said Cutter Matlock, Director of Administration for Six Flags America.  “Six Flags America is committed to helping our neighbors and we are eager to demonstrate that dedication again this year.”

Six Flags America’s local days of service are part of the company’s third-annual Project 6 initiative, fostered by Six Flags Friends. Across the US, Mexico, and Canada, Six Flags employees gather together to volunteer in their local communities on these designated service days. Project 6 will benefit organizations dedicated to environmental issues, the needs of children and families, or public welfare.  In 2011, Six Flags employees across the nation will donate more than 25,000 hours of service through Project 6.
