Volunteers needed for O’field playground installation
The Orangefield Elementary PTA purchased new playground equipment for the elementary school. Part of the plan is to have a community installation.
With the money that was saved by doing this, the PTA was able to purchase swings and a smaller activity area for the new playground. The PTA is in need of volunteers to help make the installation a success.
It will start at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 8 and Saturday, June 9. On Friday the main poles for the equipment will be set for a total of 61 holes. Saturday will be the main installation day to finish a new playground for the elementary students.
There are many areas to volunteer: installation, desserts, clean up, etc. The PTA has about 40 volunteers so far. They would like to have at least 75 for Saturday.
Volunteers can either come only in the morning and/or the afternoon if they prefer. The PTA will be providing lunch on both days along with snacks and water. There will also be a large canopy close to the install to cool down. The gym will be open for food and to cool down during the day.
E-mail the Orangefield PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Nikki Garrett directly at 988-2927 or email@example.com to volunteer.
