Default Playground for Ethel

The Stafford family is collecting aluminum cans (and $$) to buy a playground set for the Ethel racetrack.

There are 3 blue barrels marked "Cans for Kids" at the site. We were able to collect a 55 gallon bag of cans (uncrushed) at the Independents Play Day along with a $5.00 donation. Thank you racers! And thank you for only putting cans in the barrels!

We will continue to collect cans (and $$) until we have enough for a playground.

Anyone who wishes to donate cans other than in the barrels at the site, please contact Rob at 253-691-4351. We'd be very greatful.

That is a great idea. I will bring this up at our region meeting tomorrow and see if region 3 would like to donate to this.

Regoin 3 has donated $100.00 We all thought that this was a great idea. I would challange others to donate.

Diana, you should be seeing a check from us in a week or so.

And BIG thank you to the Stafford family for stepping up and doing this project. The kids will love it.

Received $100.00 from Region 3 in the mail today.

So far we've collected $105.00 in cash and a bunch of cans. I better get to crushing.

Update on the playground.

So far we've collected $153.00.

$48.00 from can recycling.
$5.00 monetary donations.
$100.00 donation from Region 3.

$200.00 donation has been pledged.

I have another batch of cans to take to the recycler after Labor Day.

So little by little that playground is in sight.

If you have cans you'd like to donate, I'd be happy to take them to the recycler.

And of course actual money is always appreciated.

My goal is to get a wooden playground set and hopefully a smaller Little Tykes style too.
