It's On like Donkey Kong!!  The folks at the Yakima Greenway teamed up with Yakima Rotary, the Rotary Trust and a bunch of great community minded companies are about the business of putting a fantastic play space for the children of Yakima.

We're talking about building an icon to replace an icon! The historic McGuire Playground is nearly 28 years old. Time, weather, and use have taken their toll, but the new community playground will entertain families for generations to come and you can be a part of it!

As luck would have it, just in time for the heavy lifting on the project, the temperatures are even higher than  the expectations for all the fun the new structure will provide.

Besides, nobody handles heat like Yakimanians, right? ...aaaand maybe some of those nut-jobs that live year round in Death Valley....but you won't find a Greenway or a playground there! Still, somebody's gotta do it...even if only for an hour or two...and it could/should be you!  At least the Greenway hopes it's you.

From the Greenway facebook -  Yes it’s HOT but it’s going to be so COOL! We need volunteers, experienced or not, must be 14 years or older. Friday & Saturday - even if you can only commit to part of a shift. We need you! Be apart of this awesome Rotary Playground build, for our community. Thank you!
Greenway Director and Rotarian Kellie Connaughton was on the KIT News Morning Show looking for volunteers!  Will she see you there?
