Members of the Staples High School Service League of Boys (SLOBs) helped out Saturday with maintenance and landscaping services for the play area at Westport Animal Control on Elaine Road. The play area was donated through the efforts of Westporter Amanda Neckritz along with her family and friends as her mitzvah project. Additional filler stone and mulch were donated by Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA).
