Playground to be built this weekend
The Warrensburg Elementary Playground construction project will be underway this weekend, and volunteers are still needed to help out.
For those who haven’t already signed up to volunteer – it’s not too late! Just stop by the worksite at Warrensburg Elementary School, 1 James Street, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Friday Aug. 9 and Sunday Aug. 11. Food items to fuel the work crew can be dropped off at the school on Friday and Saturday mornings between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. or so.
The existing playground, to be dismantled, is to be sent overseas and re-constructed for needy children.
