Volunteers give time to decorate

A handful of volunteers showed up to help the Women’s Achievement Club decorate Roosevelt Park Saturday afternoon as the group gets set for the holiday season. WAC has been lighting up the central city park for several years. “This year we have added new arches,” said the Club’s president Elaine O’Neal. “The wind ought to have quite a bit of fun with them.” O’Neal said weather is generally the biggest challenge for the Club’s annual decorating project – last year winter weather cancelled the project altogether – but for the most part volunteers are able to fix or reset anything that blows over or gets broken.
