Emergency Kits – Park Director Jacqueline Raycraft spoke of the need of the park to have emergency kits for all the campers that will be attending summer camp. She also stated that all parks had to be self sustaining and that the money in their budget was not there to provide emergency kits for all the campers. She also stated that she would ask the parents of someof the campers to purchase these kits. However, some of the parents because of financial situation would not be able to purchase the items, which is why she is asking for assistance. There was a question about the park being self-sustaining and she went on to explain that all parks with in the city are now mandated to be self-sustaining. Trips, salaries and program activities had to come from the fees charged through out the year. She also talked about the gardening program that the park had which was partially funded by HHWNC last year.
