‘Tis the season

Pastor Ernest Peachey (left) and Scott Barrett (right), both city councilman who are part of East Liverpool’s playground committee along with Jeff Kreefer (not pictured) stand outside the Willie Cook Memorial Park on the city’s east end. The trio decided this year to kick off the Christmas in the Parks’ program by adding a little cheer to the playground with some festive wood cutouts around Thanksgiving. Neighbors have been very receptive and respectful of the temporary new flair to the grounds, and they hope to expand the program next year to other areas of the city. To contribute to the cause, contact the committee through the mayor’s office at 330-385-3381. (Photo by Stephanie Ujhelyi)
