Support Fort Scott and YAT

Posted Tuesday, July 8, 2008, at 11:02 AM

The YATers (this is only what I call them, I have no idea if it's a technical name for them) need some help to finish off the Pennies in the Park world record thing you've all been hearing about lately. For those of you who have no idea what this is, go here http://www.fstribune.com/story/1395659.h....

This morning I ventured over to Fort Scott Middle School to photograph the millions of pennies that now wait in the back of a semi-trailer. Beginning Tuesday evening the pennies will be laid in the parking lot on a round-the-clock basis.

YOU have the opportunity to be a part of the world record. If you're 16 years or older head on up to the middle school, sign a waiver and get to work.

They need all the help they can get. By looking at the photo above you can probably tell that there are more pennies than a few people can lay. Get out there now!!!

Don't plan on trying something slick and running off with a few pennies either. The entire area will be guarded with armed security at all times. Just thought I'd warn anyone thinking they'd pull some dumb trick.

In all seriousness, you can be a part of something big. It's as easy as firing up the automobile, the lawnmower or your bike and heading up the hill to put pennies into a grid. It won't be hard, just time-consuming.

If you have a few moments to spare, donate them to a good cause.

They're still taking donations too!
