There has to be a solution.
Don't they dig holes there in OKC? Dynamite?
My kids school fundraises and generates a slush fund of $150,000 every year, and we are by no means a rich neighborhood. The kids have a prom in a reception hall (yes, grade 6) with music and food, all paid for. Every year extremely expensive playground equipment goes in. All this from weekly "pizza days", dress-down days, dances, fundraising walks, etc. and is accomplished $1.00 at a time.
