December 2002 Bulletin

Pitch in at the New Orleans playground build!

Join your colleagues and help build the Academy’s 4th Safe, Accessible Playround on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2003—the day before the Annual Meeting begins.

The build begins at 8 a.m. and finishes at approximately 4:30 p.m.

Buses will run between the Morial Convention Center and the playground site every hour from 7:30 a.m. through 4:30 p.m., and continental breakfast and lunch will be provided at the location.

No experience is necessary to help—experienced project managers will be on site to oversee the build. If you have an hour or two, or the entire day, come and see why this program is so rewarding and why state societies, hospitals and local practices are replicating it at the local level!
