Monett Area YMCA Challengers Day Camp participants spent Wednesday painting the concrete seats and planters at Monett's South Park. Some of the participants are pictured above. From left, are: Alex Ormsby, Bailey Flint and Casey Shields. The project was one of the Challengers community service projects, according to Layla Minton, camp director. "This is a great team-building exercise and gives the kids an opportunity to give back to the community," Minton said. Later, the group will plant flowers in the planter areas on the benches.
