ARCO TRANSPORTATION CO. TURNS MANAGEMENT MEETING INTO UNIQUE COMMUNITY PROJECT AT LONG BEACH PARK

 ARCO TRANSPORTATION CO. TURNS MANAGEMENT MEETING
 INTO UNIQUE COMMUNITY PROJECT AT LONG BEACH PARK
 LONG BEACH, Calif., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 120 ARCO employees rolled up their sleeves today (Thursday, Sept. 17) and refurbished a Long Beach city park in a unique example of public- private partnership.
 The project was an exercise within a management conference conducted by ARCO Transportation Co. (ATC), ARCO's marine and pipeline division headquartered in Long Beach.
 "The theme of our conference was 'Teamwork in Action,' said ATC President William C. Rusnack. "We wanted a challenging, team- building project that would be of service to the community and would not disappear when the conference was over."
 Toward that end, discussions were held with the Long Beach Parks Department and a playground site was chosen for refurbishment.
 Early this morning, 124 members of ATC's management team boarded buses that took them to Admiral Kidd Park on Santa Fe Avenue and 21st Street in west Long Beach.
 Arriving at 9 a.m. the group divided into nine project teams, each supervised by professional contractors. After a ceremony featuring Mayor Ernie Kell, the teams set to work.
 About seven hours later, the $50,000 project (exclusive of the volunteer labor costs) was completed and the park had a shiny new face: picnic tables and benches were washed or repainted, much of the playground equipment was replaced, all-purpose courts were resurfaced and restriped, the backstop and bleacher were refurbished and a new slide and horseshoe pits were installed.
 In another brief ceremony at the end of the day, the refurbished facility was dedicated to the city.
