Our final fundraiser brought in $25,000! This is the money we needed to complete our wish list. The generosity of our community continues to be overwhelming. A huge thanks to the Fiesta Committee: Lori Jo Ettenhofer, Patty Zoratti, Jennifer Parker, Jacqui Bruns and Jill Bruder who know how to plan a successful and extremely fun event. Another huge thanks to our donors. See side of website for a list of donors. It goes on and on....
After pondering and planning over the long winter, the playground organizing committee has settled on the following priorities:
A play area designed for children with special needs including a rubber surfacing for wheelchair accessibility. There will be saucer swings, swing for kids with physical disabilities and activity panels that address sensory challenges.
An outdoor fitness park which will include work out equipment that will withstand the elements. You will recognize the equipment as the outdoor version of the equipment you find at the gym!
A concrete walkway around the perimeter of the playground to allow easier access for wheelchairs, strollers as well as a place for circuit training and walking or running.
THE SECOND AND FINAL PHASE OF THE HENRY "HANK" PLANGER COMMUNITY PLAYGROUND!
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!
