Make a difference at Ridgecrest

The students at Ridgecrest Elementary School have learned how to make a big difference in a small way — at the annual PTA-sponsored walk-a-thon. During the past two years, their pledges from family, friends and neighbors has gone to the fund for purchasing a new playground structure. With some additional help from local businesses and grant monies, the students’ dreams will soon come true.

It’s not too late to sign up to be a contributing part of this playground structure, one the entire Ridgecrest community will be able to use. Contact Playground Committee Leader Jorien Smythe at
