The AKA sorority members will restore and renew 1,908 existing community and school playgrounds with its Restore, Refresh and Renew Project (AKA 1908 Playgrounds Mobilization Day). Special thanks and appreciation  are extended to the Buckingham Career and Technical Center for the construction of the bench, to Ellis Acres Community Recreation Center Board Members for their support, to Wilbur Dean, founder of Ellis Acres, Donnie Bryan, member of the Board of Supervisors in Buckingham, and Joii W. Goodman, Buckingham County School Board member, for their participation in the dedication of the bench and support, and to Rev.
