STUDENTS OF Wakefield-Marenisco K-12 School engage in some lively summer exercise on a rainy Friday in the community room of the Wakefield municipal building. Thanks to more than $27,000 raised from a local group called 4 the Kids, the community room has been transformed in the past year to serve a dual purpose as a practice gym. Playing volleyball are, from left, Julia Tarro, 16, and Kayla Zeckovich, 12. Behind them, at left, Emily DelFavero, 10, shows great form dribbling while her brother, Antonio DelFavero, 14, prepares to toss a basketball into the hoop. Meanwhile, siblings Noah Brown, 16, and Kaitlyn Brown, 9, stand ready to take a turn. The large, netted area to the right is a batting cage, which will be set up for use during spring season baseball practice.
