The Clinton High School Class of 1973's endeavor to transform the old Roque Court on Main Street in Clinton is complete.
For three years now the Class of 73 has been hard at work trying to transform the small park on Main Street in Clinton. Cris Rogers with the Class of 73 says the park is all but complete. They were able to secure some final few supplies and recently they were able to acquire a piece of Clinton history to add to the park.
The road to where the completion of the park has been somewhat stressful for Rogers and his classmates. He says it took a while to prove to the community this was not something they were just talking about, they stepped forward and put the work to demonstrate they were serious about it. He says once the community saw they were taking this seriously, donations began to come in, helping the park progress.
Rogers explains this was not a project to shed light on the Class of 1973. He says they have been involved in many ways in the community over the years, but he felt this park was a way for them to give back to the community that has been good to them.
Rogers says they are debating having a dedication to give the park back to the city of Clinton. He explains the park is a city park and falls under all the ordinances codes in place. He notes it will also be up to the city to keep up with the maintenance.
