Only 1 month to go!!!

We are only 31 days away from the building of our new park!! We are all so excited, but are trying hard to get all of the details finalized. If you haven't done so already, please register to volunteer to help us build our playground. If you have already registered, please click on the "Join the Effort" bubble again to tell us exactly what you would like to help do on Build day. There are different areas to help out, and we need to know where to put you and your family. This will also help us know how much food to get, and how many children will be in the Children's area.
