The Sunnyside Parks and Recreation Dept. recently held its
24th annual South Hill Park campout. This overnight campout was attended by 20
youngsters, and it featured games, crafts, movies, dinner and breakfast the
A successful event such as this one would not have been
possible without the help of many local businesses and volunteers. I would like
to thank the following businesses for their support of this event: Arby's,
Darigold, Safeway, KFC, McDonald's, Subway, The Valley's Market, JC Penney,
Burger Ranch and the Daily Sun News. All in attendance of this overnight event
enjoyed the donations immensely.
I would also like to thank the following people for their
service in making this event a fun and enjoyable one: Sunnyside Fire Department
for coming out to the park and showing the kids the fire truck and getting them
wet, Sunnyside Police Department for its time to keep the event safe, the
Sunnyside Migrant Council for letting us use the community center and to
chaperones Laura Berkompas, Brooks Salazar, James Sanchez, Michael Sanchez,
Suzie Cruz and Jane Swindell.
Thanks again to all the volunteers, sponsors and youngsters
who helped make this memorable event a success.
