 ARCO AND THE LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS
 TO INTRODUCE COMMUNITY YOUTH PROGRAM, THURSDAY, OCT. 22
 ARCO and the Los Angeles Clippers will introduce a new, jointly sponsored community youth program at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 22, 1992, at the Ernest Killum Recreation Center, 1464 109th Street, in South Central Los Angeles.
 The ARCO/Clippers "Neighborhood PRIDE" program is a city-wide parks improvement program that includes refurbishing 66 basketball courts at 21 playgrounds, bringing motivational basketball clinics to inner-city youths, and creating a city-wide youth basketball tournament. All of the playground refurbishing work is being performed under the supervision of minority contractors.
 Immediately following Thursday's press conference to unveil the first refurbished court at the 109th Street Center, the Clippers will present a demonstration basketball clinic to some 100 children from nearby schools. The full program ultimately will benefit 7,500 youths throughout Los Angeles.
 The 109th Street ceremony will include comments by the Clippers, city officials and ARCO executives. Refreshments will be provided by ARCO's am/pm mini markets.
 DIRECTIONS:
 Take the Harbor Freeway (110) to the Century Boulevard exit in South Central Los Angeles. Go east on Century past Avalon until you reach Central. Turn right (south) on Central and continue past 108th Street (intersection with light) until 109th Street. Turn left (east) onto 109th. The Rec Center is about four blocks down on the right. Identify yourself as part of the press conference to pass through any police checks. Secure parking is available.
