(Quoddy Tides) South End Tot Park moved The South End tot park in Eastport was recently moved to a more desirable location thanks to the efforts of a num- ber of local families. The recreation area was removed from Battery Street and reconstructed on South Street after parents in the neigh- borhood complained to the Eastport City Council that no one was caring for the tot park in its original location and, if it was moved to another site on city land, the local residents would ensure its up- keep. A number of adults and children par- ticipated in the moving process which took place over a five-week period and consisted of tea work sessions' They in- cluded: Mr. and Mrs. Phil Craig, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Mopers, Gary Craig, Bruce McInnis, Paul Claroni, Mr. and Mrs. Dick Critchley, Mr. and Mrs. Mark Young, Linda Dudley, Sandra Brunk, Herb Spear, Jackie Hicks, Billy Lawrence, Raymond Craig and Fred Wilson. Youngsters lend- ing a hand were Betsy Craig, David Clar- oni, Matthews Moholland, Tommy and Ritchie Critchley, Jana and Jamie Craig, Anna Snyder, Vicki McCulloch and Martha Dudley. The South End residents want to thank city workers Rene Dell and Gerald Brewster for hauling sand and cement, the City of Eastport for lending its equip- ment, Jim Lowe and the Mead Corp. for donating equipment, Reid Wilson for the use of his truck, Jon Calder and Eddie Mullen for free trash removal.
