A number of parents even wanted to see it continued, because the children could mingle before going to middle school, sort of a ‘meet and greet before September,’” he said. Kratz said that Veterans Park had been considered as a site but was rejected because it has little shade. Its close proximity to Crescent School was also seen as a deterrent. “We’re very confident we’ll be able to put together a good and exciting program for 2010. We will just do it on two sites,” Kratz said.
