Playground Installation

Everything is set for the playground installation on Saturday, October 11th at 8:00am. It will take around 8 hours, and we need 15-20 volunteers. Volunteers do not need construction skills but should have strong backs and be able to read and follow directions. The typical activities in a volunteer’s day include:

  • Unwrapping and organizing each individual piece of equipment.
  • Lifting posts into the holes, or attaching the decks to the posts.
  • Some will work on individual activities such as a slides or climbers. This group will need to read directions, find all of the pieces, put all of the hardware together properly, and finally bring the activity to the Supervisor when instructed.
  • Others will mix concrete and move the concrete to the holes when instructed.

If anyone has a concrete mixer, that would be a great help. Looking forward to seeing you all there!
