PARKING LOT - Perform First Large Project of Service to This DIRT USED FOR FILLING Community The first laige project of actual service to the community was that of the Smyma-Clayton Junior Chamber of Commerce on Sadur day t> June 13, when they set out at seven o'clock in the morning to clear the recently leased lof in back of the Post Office to add space for car parking. The Jay cees, despite the intense heat and humidity, cleared the lot of a dense growth of smaU trees and bushes, plus poison ivy, and piled the de bris on trucks and hauled it away. They also engaged in breaking up the remains of a concrete block restroom which has been removed from tke site, and loaded and haul ed away the rubble. Working un- i der the direction of James Warren, foreman of town crews, they as staked with the filling in of the rear of the lot to a depth of sev end feet. Dump trucks provided by George & Lynch, contractors, were ; used for this part of the project, , j as well as a large grader. Filling With Dirt Large piles of dirt from the East ! Commerce Street pro jeer have toeen hauled to the Main Street loti and will ibe used to fill in as the area settles. This service was vol unteered by the Jaycees to save the town money for labor and to .expedite the acquisition of more free parking space in the center of the town. The Main Street lot, near Four Comers, added to Mar ket Street Plaza now provides free parking space for several hundred cars. John E. Wilson, Jr., also a member of Town Council, and Rod ney Schuman comprised the Jay ceea committee. They were assis ted by a large group of the Jay cees membership in the work.
