A "Day of Caring" brought about 60 people, some from St. Thomas, to clean up the Julius E. Sprauve School, the St. John Source reported. Juanita Young, president of the United Way, sanded a picket fence at the school’s entrance and said, "This brings the community as whole to a particular project." This was the first activity on St. John organized by the charitable group, the story said. Caneel Bay resort contributed workers as well as equipment including a backhoe. Volunteers painted the concrete fence around the Winston Wells ball field and helped prepare an area across from the school where it is hoped playground equipment can be installed.
