Crew from Lane Excavating begins digging the numerous holes for playground structure posts and other support points to be installed starting June 4. Holes will be ready in time for the start of the week-long build at Ninth and Eugene streets.
As of Friday, May 25, 2018
The Children’s Park community build begins in less than two weeks. Organizers need many volunteers to help during build week to make the park design a reality.
Build days are June 4-10, with three shifts available per day (8 a.m. to noon, 12:30-4:30 p.m., and 5-8:30 p.m.), with meals provided in-between.
“Assistance during one shift or many shifts will all make a difference,” said Megan Saunders, City Council member and project liaison.
The biggest need is builders (whether experienced with power tools or not) to help put together the park. Also needed are folks to help with volunteer welcome, tool organization, food service, and childcare assistance.
Also needed: seven more crew leaders (no building experience necessary) who can be present all (or most) shifts.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Also, if you would be willing to loan any of the below tools for the build week, email email@example.com. Tools will be locked in a secure area for the duration of the project. Needed tools include:
Drills — 3/8-inch
Impact drills 3/8-inch
Shovels (long handled spade)
Speed squares — six-inch
