In addition, Jack Griffin and Corey French were there on behalf of the American Legion at Trenton. Griffin sought permission to use Eastside Park July 4th for a car show and
mud volleyball games. No objections were made by the 4 Park Board members in attendance---Don Altes, Curtis Crawford, Duane Helmandollar, and Gary Schuett. The car show is to be at the same location as in the past---the parking lot between Burleigh Grimes Field and C. F. Russell Stadium. The mud volleyball is to be north of Burleigh Grimes Field again this year. No barbecue is planned.

Park Board member, Duane Helmandollar, said it's been a good season so far at Trenton Family Aquatics Center. He described the attendance as good---averaging around 190 a day. Passes sold include 87 family, 49 individual, 4 senior, and 3 for lap swimming.

No interviews have been conducted yet for the Assistant Manager position at the pool. The Aquatics Center has 2 head life guards, in addition to Manager, Daniel Gott.

Helmandollar praised those who did work at the Aquatic Center to get it ready for opening the season.

Parks Superintendent, Jason Shuler, said everything at the pool is running well except for one pump. The pump and motor for a play structure need to be replaced----- so were ordered. The delivery could take 4 to 6 weeks. The cost is nearly $3,300. The expenditure was authorized by Helmandollar and Park Board President, Don Altes.

Superintendent Shuler said renovations to Johnson ballfield have been completed and the outfield has been seeded. Concrete pads for the bleachers still need to be poured. Sharp Stonework is expected to arrive in a week or so for dugout blockwork.

A strong wind, again, blew down part of the outfield fence at Burleigh Grimes Field. The posts have been straightened and chain link fence fabric is to be reinstalled soon. Shuler said a fabric with maximum air flow is to be used. North Central Missouri College is to provide $500 for the project. North Central Missouri College President,
Neal Nuttall, was described as committed to help with costs at Burleigh Grimes Field.

Shuler thanked the Trenton Municipal Utilities Electric Department for assisting with the removal of a large tree at Ray Van Meter Park. The tree was described as
more than half dead and becoming dangerous. Bucket and derrick trucks were used in the removal.

Volunteers from the Upward Bound program at North Central Missouri College are to perform work at Moberly Park today. They include weeding and trimming at flower beds-----and parking lot sweeping.

The Park Board received a thank you card from Teresa Cross of North Central Missouri College. The Board, last month, approved Mrs. Cross' request for the Trenton Family Aquatics Center to be open this Friday night for use by participants in the Lions District All Star basketball games.

A Prisoner of War flag has been ordered for the War Memorial flagpole at Moberly Park. Donations continue to be sought for the pole replacement project at the War Memorial. They can be given to Park Board members or Superintendent Jason Shuler.
