DREDGE GRAVEL FOR 'WORK BEE': About 65 members of the Ypsilanti Kiwanis Club turned out Saturday for a 7 1/2-hour "work bee" at Riverside Park. They took gravel from the Huron River and used it to lay out parking spaces for about 35 cars, framing the parking areas with logs. Kiwanians also mowed the entire park, trimmed brush long the riverbank and planted about 200 petunias. Here some of the 120 loads of gravel they used in the all-day project is dredged from the river bottom.
