COMMUNITY WORK BEE AT NEW YPSILANTI PARK: Ypsilanti Kiwanians, aided by volunteer workers and members of American Legion Post 408, spent all day Saturday at the new Park Ridge park, installing swings and other playground equipment, mowing grass on the 12-acre site and setting posts (above) for an elaborate circle drive and parking area. It was the fifth such work bee since Kiwanians undertook development of the southside area last year. Here, Andrew F. Smith (right), chairman of the Kiwanis committee sponsoring the project, aids Louis J. Kress (center) and Ypsilanti High School Coach Ron Isbell install posts marking the circle drive.

Eve Schmale saw no reason why an accident that blinded her 10 years ago should mean turning away from years of volunteer service. When one agency couldn't find enough for her to do, she got in touch with Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP), and ended up as coordinator of volunteers at the Washtenaw Intermediate School District. She marvels at the "inspired" WISD program, which, she says, enables mentally retarded people to "live like human beings instead of in institutions."
