The Sam Rayburn Reservoir area is being
spruced up in preparation for the two million vis-
itors expected this year. Picnic areas are already
being used by visitors who find spring-like weath-
er just right to visit the parks around the reser-
voir. At left, Windy Hinote, 3V6, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. W. H. Hinote of Port Neches, samples
the cool water in one of the many fountains in
the area. In the background are members of her
family enjoying a picnic lunch. The center pic-
ture shows some of the picnic tables. The pic-
ture at the right shows an observation shelter in
the foreground. Dallas Willians, W 0 0 d v i 11 e
nurseryman, is planting shrubs in the park. Some
of the parks in the area have been completed
and others are being speeded up in time to take
care of the influx of visitors. The volume of water
has increased fishing and boating. Fishing is said
to be excellent.
