Playground Dreams Become a Reality By Jason Lee Fpr years the Elementary Teachers of Clarendon have wanted a new layground for their students. This wish for a children's recreational area was also shared by the Clarendon PTA. When these two groups of adults realized that their dreams could become a reality, a plan was conceived. The plan began last August when the Clarendon PTA was decidlng on a main project for the year. Knowing that a new playground was needed, their decision was to plan and construct a playground on the Clarendon School Campus. It was then that the PTA applied for grants and started getting local and area support for this beneficial project. PTA Project Chairman Cindy Shelton, with the help from volunteers DeAnn Sears, Weldon Sears, Rhonda Newhouse, Sandy Anderburg, Julie Hartman, Missy Kidd, and teachers Judy Zehr, Freida Tucker, Medina Gribble, and Gall Hankius were bound and determined to make the main PTA Project of the year a success.

TEXAS A&M RANCH TO RAIL Commercial ranchers and In the beginning they weren't sure how much money they could raise. With their minds set on hgving a new playground com- pleted bythe be0uninS of the 1994- 95 school year, they began having fundraisers. To get support they sold candy, planned and competed in a Teacher - Parent basketball game, and held a Tasting Lunch- eon. As the word of a new playground spread around, more support and funding was gotten. At the time of consmuc the ma Project had been granted $15,ooo from the Amarmo Area Foundation, $8,.300 from the Resource Conversation & Development Program, $6,000 School District, $4,500 from the Clarendon PTA, plus more local contributions. With a total of $35,000 the PTA then knew that the development of the playground would soon begin. The land where the playground would be was leveled. A founda- tion of sand and gravel was set in, and then the structure that is now the new playground was as- sembled. The playground has several slides, monkey bars, and other flay.ctk Now the PTA and Elemen- tary  dremm have become a reality. In additlon to these adnlts being content, the students of Clarendon Element School now have a new place to play.

However, we believe that one of the best ways to prepare for tomorrow is by looking at the past and by asking our customers and employees what they anticipate wl be needed in the future," Oneth said. Anyone with an interest in natural resource conservation is invited to participate. A survey form is available for those who are unable to attend the forum(s).
