RFP-BIDS Graphic


The Chowchilla City Council recently voted to rename the City's Sports & Leisure Park after Mr. Edward Ray. Edward is regarded as a local hero from his role as the driver of the school bus with 26 children who were kidnapped on July 15, 1976. The kidnapping launched Chowchilla into national headlines and created a day that many still would like to forget.

To forever memorialize Mr. Ray the park at 15th Street south of Ventura Avenue will be named in his honor. The dedication ceremony will begin at 4:00pm on Thursday, February 26. The community is invited to join with City officials and members of the Ray family to attend the unveiling of a sign denoting the park henceforth as the Edward Ray Park.
