Members of the Sandrockets 4-H Club donated the materials, constructed and installed a new wooden sign at the Keil Park.
The land for the park was donated by Laverne “Choppy” and Vivian Keil. “We were pleased to be able to have them in for the photo,” commented Karen Burditt
This is the beginning of the makeover for the park. The city crew has removed most of the equipment and soon the new playground will be installed.
Wally and Arlene McHenry journeyed to Medicine Hat Alberta to pick the new equipment up.
“We are currently short about $500 for installation,” Burditt said. If anyone is willing to contribute you may do so at Stockman Bank or by contacting her at the Horizon Lodge or 271-5295.
Boy Scout Jacob Gouchenour is going to put in tables on a cement pad and build a cover over them as an Eagle Scout project.
The tables were purchased with funds from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans. There will also be a new bench on each side of the playground.
“The NU Keil Park committee is very excited to get the equipment installed so the children can have a safe place to play. We feel it will be a real asset to the neighborhood and community,” added Burditt.
