On March 23, Adopt-a-Park volunteers from Transitions Optical helped city of Clearwater park and beautification staff to distribute and spread new mulch throughout the Sunshine Limitless Playground at the Long Center, 1501 N Belcher Road. Work began at 8 a.m. and ended at noon.
The Adopt-a-Park program is open to businesses, neighborhood associations and organizations with at least six members that want to adopt a Clearwater park. These groups are required to complete two service projects in their park or other city park during the year. Their hard work is recognized with a sign bearing their name in the adopted park.

Nationwide Title Clearing will show its support for Pinellas County Commissioner John Morroni by sponsoring him as its inspirational survivor and making him an honorary team member at the 2012 Relay For Life of Palm Harbor event April 13 at Palm Harbor University High.
Employees of NTC, a national post-closing services provider for the residential mortgage industry, have so far collected more than $5,200 in donations this year for the American Cancer Society, Relay For Life of Palm Harbor.
Morroni is fighting his own battle with cancer for the second time.
"We all need to realize how much John has done for our community and take this opportunity to do something for him, said Bruce Sheehey, a friend of Morroni's and a long-time employee of NTC. "The Relay For Life of Palm Harbor event is a remarkable way to raise money and awareness for a disease that can affect anyone. It is our turn to give back and show support."
