Helping hands

Special thanks go out to numerous people. The improvement that these people have accomplished is outstanding.

Helping out with preparing the Fifth Street guardrail for this Saturday's handprint project were Carlos Maya III and Tina Knoth with the flyer creation and printing; the SHS leadership class, Holly Ohler, Day Reporting, Vianca Herrera and Jason Moyer with posting the flyers, and all the local businesses that allowed them to be posted; Debbie Guerin, Jesse Woods, Patricia Marlin, Geraldine Jim, Walter Bremer, Richie Bender, Bobbi Isaac, Vianca Herrera, Jason Moyer, Miguel Rodriguez, Julian Perez and Adrian Correa with scraping the guardrails; Bieber Brothers for donating the five gallons of white paint; Wal-Mart for the paint scrapers and brushes; Marshall Doak for providing the clean-up rags; and Marshall Doak, Vianca Herrera, Rick Melendrez, Nathan Gonzalez, J.T. Gonzalez, Daneill Gonzalez, Jessica Phillis, Samantha Rodriguez, Jeff Scott, Joshua R. Galang for painting the guardrail; and the Meldendrez family for lunch, root beers and all the other help.

But now is the time for all the citizens of Sunnyside to step forward to put your handprints on the clean, white canvas to complete our community picture of thousands of handprints to symbolize our diversity, but our common goal. Helping hands can make improvements if we work together. Join us Saturday, June 19, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Fifth Street guardrail, young and old, and in between.
