Phase Two of the playground equipment for New England Lions Park was delivered on October 11. Lions unloaded 47 pieces with a total weight of 2,000 pounds. Johnny Plaggemeyer and Gregg Fitterer assisted with a fork lift. Installation began a week later, with completion expected within a week.

Recent donations and grants bring the total funds available to just over $61,000 for the $80,000 project. A loan enabled the Lions club to order and pay for Phase Two to complete the project this year. Donations are still encouraged.
