Playground Spring Clean-up

E-mail Print



Wendell Center Playground Clean-up
Saturday May 4th 10-noon

The Town could use some volunteer help getting the playground (next to the Library) in shape for the upcoming season of play. - Together it shouldn't take long -
    Let's rake the grass to remove leaves & sticks.
    Let's get the wood chips back under the play equipment.

We even could use a volunteer or two to refresh the stain on the big wooden glider swing.
(Library will provide stain and brushes.)

BYO rakes & tarps.

Kids Welcome to play or help out.
