The Run for the Rec helped to raise funds to refurbish the mulch in the playground. The old surface had become compressed and was filled with weeds. So dozens of volunteers went to work removing the old and distributing the new safe surfacing, specially designed to absorb the impact of any falls.

Michael Fedorchak refurbished the bleachers and benches around the ball field as his Eagle Project this spring. The bleachers' frame was getting rusty, weeds grew all around, and the seats were splintered to the point where no one sat on the bleachers any longer. With a lot of time and effort, and donations from local supporters including the McKnight Women's Club, Michael and a few helpers made everything look like new. Michael was recently awarded his Eagle Scout badge and also the McKnight Women's Club scholarship. Congratulations and Thank you Michael.
