Gene Alexander, retired school principal from Benton, Illinois, (more often known as Mr. A) puts his heart into making United States playground maps that can be seen all over central and southern Illinois. So far, this young at heart, 70-year-old man has made over 370 United States playground maps.

Mr. A doesn’t charge one penny to make these maps at schools, playgrounds, parks, churches, libraries, day care centers, nursing homes, and even private homes. The maps are typically 25 feet across by 18 feet top to bottom. Made on flat surfaces such as asphalt and concrete, the maps can last up to 10-12 years. If a map needs a little “face-lift,” he’s ready and willing to make another visit to perk up the map to last even longer.

Mr. A would love to make a United States playground map for you! Please contact him at the Benton Grade School at 618-439-3136 or at his home number 618-439-3729.

Our WRNN students filmed a commercial to advertise Mr. A's map making services.
