An Update on the Playground Rejuvenation
In the recent past weeks, work has continued on the playground. Over 300 bulbs, donated by parent Robb Stewart at The Mustard Seed, were planted. New steps were cut into the mound closest to the picnic shelter as well as a pad for the "climbing bolder" to be placed. The bolder arrives January 12th. The picnic shelter roof was completed. The craftsman that installed the twigs on the tree house returned to measure  openings to make sure all were within regulations. A big green slide has been assembled and will be mounted soon. A smaller slide was installed. Hopes are high that the remaining funds will be raised to complete the project in the spring!
