First off, there is only 1 public park in Burgaw. There is also a Community baseball field. That's IT!
The sly comment, from Surf City about uncle RC was soo juvenile! And besides, look at ALL the resources available in the Western part of Pender County!!! Burgaw is the "County Seat" of Pender County and it's time to build her up!!
I think what the Stringfield's are trying to do is wonderful. We cannot afford to lose any more of our youth to crime, mischief and teen pregnancy! Remember these children WILL become adults and perhaps may live next door to you and your family in Surf City. Which would you prefer, a well balanced individual or someone who steals YOUR possessions for a living? Granted, this Rec Center can't do it alone and I do agree with Surf City Tom about parental involvement and fund-raising. Sadly, not enough children have positive parental influences. Should we disregard children for that!
"If you build it, they will come" may not be the chosen slogan BUT perhaps the slogan, more appropriately would be "WHERE THERE IS A WILL, THERE IS A WAY"
