Besides our cowboy outfits, we got some of our first Tonka trucks! Jim got the allied van, Mike the blue pickup with boat trailer, I got the white garbage truck, and John the brown pickup which I believe had a horse trailer not shown.

I did a large part of the work on this, which was originally conceived and designed by Mr. McCoy before he was moved up to administration. This sand box was to be elevated so that kids in wheelchairs could wheel up to it and play in the sand. It was to have two levels, a lower level that fit little kidís wheelchairs and a higher one for the regular height wheelchairs. First we put it together in parts in the IA room, then it was taken back apart and moved to itís permeate location, which was in the backyard of the school. One thing that kind of ticked me was, the teacher helped the seniors make a sign that listed them as the construction company, though they actually had nothing to do with the construction. There was a picture taken along the way by someone that showed me pretending to take a hand saw to that sign. In the end though the main thing was the sandbox turned out pretty good and was enjoyed by many students at CCHS.† story from Normal For Me
