2009 Fisher Park Playground Build - Giving Back to the Community

Last year, we volunteered our time to the Paint Your Heart Out organization in Anaheim, helping to paint a house for low-income qualified individuals (see last year's post). This year, we volunteered for the Fisher Park Playground Build event, serving as one of the Team Leads to build a larger playground for older kids.

Parents in the Floral Park/West Floral Park neighborhoods and surrounding communities came out to help prep, build, and clean up over several days, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on the official launch of the new playground on Saturday, May 9th.

It was hard work but it was well worth it to see the community getting together to give all the kids a bigger playground to enjoy!
