City Parks in Better Shape Thanks to III Years
By: 24790 Marjorie Gaulin-Riffou
For three years now, the third year class project has consisted of preparing the city’s public grounds for the summer by performing seasonal maintenance tasks.
The class of 2011 performed these seasonal maintenance tasks May 8th 2010. Unfortunately, due to light rain most of the day, the class had to concentrate their effort in the three following parks: City Park, Lake Ontario Park and Megaffin and Kattings Sports Fields.
OCdts performed different tasks such as painting the interior of some buildings as well as some picnic tables and benches, raked leaves, and help with some general clean up. In addition this year, the class of 2011 fund-raised to buy a new play structure for the city of Kingston.
The new swing set, located in City Park, was unveiled during a ceremony held in City Park on May 8th. The RMC commandant, Commodore William Truelove, and a city of Kingston representative, Wayne Freeman, presented the new swing set to the city during a cutting of the ribbon ceremony.
The third year class project was a great success this year due to efforts from the OCdts. As a class we would also like to thank our sponsors for their contributions, especially Cooke’s Old World Shop Ltd, the Kinsmen Club of Kingston and the City of Kingston.
