Chris Tatnall has volunteered his time to make repairs to our playground that a playground company was going to charge over $5500 to do.Chris is doing it for less than $300 (which is the cost of supplies)!!The vandalized tunnel and bubble have been repaired and he is currently working to extend the chain length of the swings.Thank you, Chris!!!
