COMMUNITY BUILD FOR NEW PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT A HUGE SUCCESS!
Thank you, Volunteers! We had a great turnout of volunteers to help assemble the new playground equipment, and donations to help feed everyone. It was exciting to watch as it came together and fun to see how eager the local kids were as they stopped by to check on the progress. The equipment still needs some finishing touches and it will be a little while before we can take down the caution tape, so bear with us! We hope to announce the park’s new name at a dedication ceremony to be scheduled soon.
