Cheri Chanin is our mural artist and she is the best. The mural didn't get finished on build day because Cheri kept adding to the design and making it amazing. The mural crew will finish it tomorrow. Cheri even let the children be involved and let them paint.

Some predicted we would raise $10,000, and some even thought $15,000 (because that's what we needed). The final number has blown us away......$35,000! This means that we can begin plans for phase 2 (hint* an outdoor classroom? any suggestions?).
It seems that every birthday party lately has our kids sacrificing birthday gifts to make money for the playground. Shown in photo: Sofia Citrigno, Mya Citrigno, Megan Sundberg, Olivia Citrigno, & Alexandre Comeau, missing is Corbin Litchfield. We are proud of you!

Jeny Akitt from the Twin Butte General Store and the Mexican cuisine we enjoyed at the Fiesta Saturday night. A HUGE thank you to Jeny and her staff for their generous donation. Jeny closed her store to serve us and then showed us her support by donating the meal and participating in the auction! Stay tuned for the profit- results are being tallied...
