continued “This project is something we started this year; however, we have done other community service collections in the past. We decided that this year we would donate more than money,” Rawson said.
Every year, WCSD teaches character education. Community service is one of the traits.
Other projects have included “Pennies for Pets,” which was donated to the Westport SPCA, the third and fourth grades collected money to donate to Haiti coined “Hope for Haiti.”
Supplies for the clean up were donated by Camp Dudley.
Ballard Park, a local spot that community members can enjoy, has a public beach, outdoor stage for Shakespeare in the Park and a lovely garden to sit and enjoy. Johnston said he hopes with the help of the community the park will continue to be a great place for all to enjoy.
