We had 150 volunteers preregistered for Build Day. We had about 200 volunteers show up! We ran out of t-shirts and we had printed 175. It was truly inspiring to walk around the site and see community members of all ages working together with such energy and enthusiasm. We had lots of plants to dig holes for which we though would not be the most popular task. Most of our planting of shrubs and trees was completed before noon. The surfacing for the playground was delivered at about 2pm when some of our volunteers had left for the day. By the time the playground equipment was installed enough to spread the surfacing, it was 5pm and we were wrapping up. A group of 8 men and boys decided to move the wood chips. With a front loader, wheel barrows and even big recycling bins, the giant mountain of wood chips was moved in an hour., Wow! What a great crew of volunteers.See All Comments Post a Comment
A playground can be built in a day, but it takes months of planning and hard work. To get there, we've broken this complex process into eight key steps, or Mile Markers, as you can see in this road map.
Of course, planning such a large project takes teamwork. Within each Mile Marker, the Project Leader and eight planning teams, outlined below, complete key tasks, ensuring that no stone is left unturned.
If everyone on the planning committee follows the roadmap and keeps on top of their tasks, they will make building a playground look easy on the big day!
