Mayor Doug Sturges and his family began last year with the Mayor Slayer race during the Melba Centennial Celebration to raise money for playground improvements at Melba City Park. This month, just in the nick of time before they left for their new home in Oklahoma, they were able to present $800 to the City Council from a Movie Night Fund raiser held last Saturday Night at the park. The movie Tangled was enjoyed by nearly 300 people. Jared Littldyke and Sam Preisler provided the projector, screen and sound equipment for the even. The movie was presented at no charge and fundraising came from sells of cotton candy, popcorn and paper lanterns. Melba PTA donated the equipment to make the popcorn and cotton candy.
