SAVE THE PLAYGROUND was a BIG SUCCESS! On Sunday, September 27th five of our youth teamed up to pressure wash and weed the playground. The Holy Cross playground holds a special place in each of our hearts. Most of us can remember how proud we were that it was one of the first structures built on our property. Tonight our team of young people discussed their favorite playground memories and how important it was for future generations to be able to enjoy similar experiences. The team recognized that play is incredibly important to social, spiritual, emotional, cognitive and physical development, as well as creativity and imagination. This is why we'll put focus on renewing the playground this fall. There is more to do in terms of cleaning up rust spots and painting, but we carried off 15 buckets of weeds and pressure washed the entire playground.
Many thanks to everyone involved!
