On June 18th we will once again join together as a community to build an outdoor fitness park and a play area designed for kids with special needs- this will include a rubber surfacing for wheelchair accessibility and activity panels that are helpful for kids with sensory needs. We are also assembling some sun shelter and hoping for wind protection. To complete our playground we will have a cement path around the perimeter of our entire playground. We will once again need all individuals to come together to make this a huge success! Click on Join the Effort today!

100 Volunteers (grown ups only) will be needed to assemble the new equipment, do a little painting and a little weeding and serve the food! After the new additions to our playground are assembled join us for a Community Festival from 2-4. Stay tuned for details on the festival activities. Fun to be had by all- BIG & small!
