Salmon Bay School gets last chunk of funding, construction begins
After securing it's last chunk of funding, students will finally see a newly renovated park this coming year at Salmon Bay School. Construction started on July 30 and the grand opening is expected to happen in late September.
At the last minute, the Salmon Bay playground committee reached out to ING Direct, a global financial institution, who donated $65,000 to the cause, according to an email sent out by the committee. The company is also donating an iPad cart, which will be equipped with one laptop, 16 iPads and wi-fi.
More importantly, however, on Aug. 30, they are sending 150 volunteers to help with installation of the play equipment and maintenance of gardens. In honor of ING Direct's generosity, and to show apprecation for the volunteers, the Salmon Bay playground committee wants to know if you can help with the following:
· Can you bring a potluck dish to share with them for lunch?
· Can you bake a pie? Make some cookies? Bring a fruit plate?
· Would you be willing to pick-up coffee for the morning? Or donuts? Bagels and cream cheese?
· And can you help out at the work party with the installation and gardens?
