Past, present and future students of Lehman Jackson Elementary School spent their last days of summer vacation painting the playgrounds at the school with members of the Lehman Jackson Elementary PTA Playground Committee. The LJE-PTA Playground Committee is raising money to purchase new playground equipment for the school but, with help from Lowe’s in Edwardsville and W. D. Jenkins Financial in Wilkes-Barre, purchased paint to brighten up the current playgrounds. The committee is currently holding fundraisers to meet its goals. The committee has opened up the concession stand at the Back Mountain Recreation Fields on Outlet Road during soccer fields. The committee will also sell discount coupon cards.
