Newmanistas Participate in Great American Clean-up

Newmanistas took advantage of the Great American Clean-up on Saturday to get rid of junk around their homes and to spruce up Newman Park.

As always the roll-off at the Park was well utilized by many in the neighborhood. Some pitched in to sweep sand off walkways, rake the wood chips in the new swing area, and remove graffiti. Board members Becky Friesenhahn and Jim Tolbert with help from Becky's family repainted two of the chess boards on the recently installed tables.

The Newman Park efforts fit prominently in an El Paso Times story in which both Becky and Jim were quoted.
