This project was made possible through the fundraising of the Stockton PRIDE organization, a KDHE Tire Waste Grant and local donations, as well as through donations from the Olive Reed Schafer Fund and the William H. Andreason Fund. It is through the efforts of all combined that this project is now a reality. The new surfacing will now be enjoyed for years to come by the children as well as the adults of the community.
