Volunteers needed for playground construction

March 18, 2014

Volunteer groups are needed to assist with playground construction in Plantersville on March 29 from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It will be a great opportunity for a spring retreat for any organization with a community-service emphasis.

Volunteer groups will be assisting with project installation and are asked to dress appropriately. Snacks and lunch will be provided. Volunteer groups will need to provide their own transportation.
