Help sought to build playground
The Warrensburg Elementary School playground redevelopment project is nearing its goal, with construction now about six weeks away.
Warrensburg Central School PTSA members and officials have coordinated the project to plan and raise funds for the playground, which is to be constructed with local volunteers from Friday Aug. 2 through Sunday Aug. 4. Work on the venue, which is to be ADA-compliant, is to begin at 8 a.m. on those days.
PTSA officials are now seeking volunteers to donate their time and talent or to provide refreshments. Those seeking to help out are asked to contact PTSA Treasurer Adrienne Bell at 260-6834 as soon as possible.
Encouraging local parents and others to volunteer, Adrienne Bell said that it is not difficult, regardless of prior experience, for people to help build playgrounds.
The equipment for the Warrensburg Elementary playground is to be provided as a kit, with step-by-step instructions. She has assured PTSA members that this is the third one she has helped construct.
Graduation caution voiced
Warrensburg Central School will hold graduation ceremonies at 7 p.m. June 21 for the Class of 2013, and hundreds of students and their friends are expected to be celebrating over the weekend.
Graduation is routinely followed by parties, so parents and other adults are urged to do what they can to keep our area youth safe. Those who hear of an underage drinking party, do the right thing and call the Anonymous Tip Line at 761-9800.
Local culture expo successful
This last weekend’s Thurman Station Wilderness Heritage Corridor Showcase Preview, an exposition of local rural culture, was considered a substantial success.
The full Wilderness Heritage expo is to be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday July 27, and will feature about 40 businesses, organizations and artisans from the towns surrounding the Thurman Station — Stony Creek, Warrensburg and Thurman.
