A Day in the Park
By Mary Lynn Bushong
1 "Wow, this is such a beautiful day. The sun is warm, the air is fresh, and I get to be near Jamie all day," said Heather as she put on a pair of work gloves.
2 "Aren't you Little Miss Sunshine? I knew there was a reason you volunteered us for the park cleanup day," said Rachel. "We'll see how bubbly you are at the end of the day. You do realize you have to actually do some work today, don't you? I mean, you can't just stare at Jamie all day."
3 "I know that. I am here to do the work, but it doesn't hurt to have an excuse to be near Jamie while I do it," remarked Heather.
4 When Mrs. Hampton passed the signup sheet around in class last week, Heather seemed very anxious to get on the list for volunteering. She had talked Rachel into joining her. She explained how it would be good for class credit and how it would benefit the park. Rachel didn't know at the time that Jamie planned to participate.
5 "Okay, volunteers, gather over here for just a few minutes, please," said the park ranger. "We will divide up into several groups, and each group will have a team leader. I will help each leader get started on a project, and then you can follow his or her lead to complete the cleanup project. We are very thankful that you were willing to come out today, and I know you will be glad that you did. It is beneficial to all of us to have clean and beautiful parks."
