As a result of what happened on that “significant cultural celebration of love … we were left trying to explain t h e u n e x pl a i n a bl e ,” Puckett said. Puckett and the SGA set Wednesday aside a s a Day of Remembrance – “a memorial to those who lost their lives in this unspeaka b l e t r a g e d y, ” t h e principal said.

You may be surprised at wh at you h ave i n common.” T here wa s emph asi s at a l l t h re e h ig h schools on remembering those who d ied .

Plans are to improve t he qu a l it y – t houg h not t he qua nt it y – of the food vendors. Last year, there were decorative accents with hay ba les a nd f lowers, and there are plans for more of that this year, Welden said, a s wel l a s more f re e a re a s for sm a l l c h i ldren to play. “The midway is going to have a whole n e w l o o k , ” We l d e n said. “K iddie rides u p to p , m o r e l i g h t s , more f u n – it ’s goi ng to look better a nd be more accessible to

Local group helps playground project become a reality

NTH STAFF REPORTS

news@newnan.com Coweta County children are one step closer to climbing on a jungle gym at the Howard Warner Community Center. The Newnan Kiwanis Club presented a $5,000 check to the Coweta Community Fund to purchase new playground equipment. The Coweta Community Foundation led the effort to raise money for the Howard Warner Playground Project. The organization needed at least $70,000 to construct the playground and buy equipment. Local real estate agent Joy Barnes helped CCF top their goal in December of 2017 during her “Little Black Dress Party” event. The playground will be constr ucted in the Chalk Level community of Newnan. The Howard Warner Community Center is located in a retrofitted school which dates to the 1930s. Anne Josey with the Coweta Community Foundation told The Newnan

Times-Herald in an earlier interview there are between 400-600 children in the Chalk Level are who would benefit from the playground. “There is no playground there and limited afterschool programs for children in the neighborhood,” Josey said. “There is so much potential in serving a large number of youth.” The community center, off Savannah Street, also serves as a second location for the Boys & Girls Club. T he $ 70,0 0 0 tota l ca me f rom m a ny d i fferent sources, including a $15,000 grant from KaBOOM. The organization is a national nonprofit dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into the daily lives of all kids, particularly those growing up in poverty in America. T he Times-Hera ld mounted a fundraising drive for the project last year, allowing readers to make donations in honor or in memory, and 100 Women Who Care Coweta County donated $5,000 to the project last summer.

Some members of the Newnan Kiwanis Club are also donating their talent and time to the project. Christopher Gilliam is the project manager and will oversee the construction of the playground. Hugh Taylor is heading up the volunteer team that will prepare the grounds and construct the playground equipment. The playground equipment will be assembled at the Howard Warner Community Center on Friday, April 27. The Coweta Community Foundation designated Saturday, April 28, as Community Day. Volunteers will spread mulch, plant flowers and beautify the areas around the new playground. Anyone wanting more information on the Howard Warner Playground project or make a donation, visit the Coweta Community Foundation website at www.cowetafoundation. org/gift/donate and select “Howard Warner School Playground Fund.”
