Playground Reunion

       Surprised and pleased to see each other, Myra Martinez (right) and her former Buena Vista Elementary teacher, Suzanne Estrada, share a hug during the Westside Community Center Picnic Aug. 27. The picnic highlighted the advocacy/fundraising that had brought the school new playground equipment in 1995. At that time, Martinez was a first-grader in Estrada's class, where the Community Center is now. On the wall behind them are postings of writings and photos salvaged from the playground time capsule. The capsule was found when City Parks removed the old playground last April. See article.
