CHS Class of 73 Eyes Finish of Peace Park Project This Summer

The Clinton High School Class of 1973s work on the Roque Court Peace Project in Clinton is nearing completion.

Member of the Class of 73, Cris Rogers explains the Court is very close to completion and they can see the finish line, however, there are still some small things yet to be done. Resurfacing will need to take place on the roque court, they also are working to install a recently acquired fence, and they are looking to install a flagpole.

As the group seeks to finish things off at the park, they have met somewhat of a roadblock. Rogers explains the group is running short on funds. He feels even though the economy is tough, the community should view this as something to be proud of because of what the park was destined to be had he and his classmates not stepped up.

Despite the lack of funds coming in, Rogers says it has not slowed the group down. He explains they have been working on things at the park that require no money to spruce up or get together. He says one final push from the community would get them where they need to be.

Provided the Class of 73 is able to secure enough funding to finish this endeavor, he is hoping for a late July, middle August opening of the park. Last year his hope was to have the park together for the Apple n Pork festival, he is hoping it will be up in advance of that this year.
