Harris Township announced plans to build a new park on Elm Road earlier this year. Now those plans will include the help of the Granger Sunrise Rotary Club. WSBT’s Patrick Roth reports.
Granger Sunrise Rotary is joining Harris Township’s effort to create a pedestrian park in Granger. The Granger Sunrise Rotary is part of the worldwide organization, Rotary International. Rotary is a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders united worldwide to provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace.
Granger Sunrise Rotary is making a multi-year commitment to build and grow a playground on the land between the fire station and library branch on the east side of Elm Road just north of State Road23. Rotary will hold fund-raisers in order to add on to the project. Items that will be added to the park include swings, slide, picnic tables and a pavilion.
Playground construction is expected to begin spring 2016.
The Granger Sunrise Rotary is currently recruiting volunteers to help with installing playground equipment and related duties. They are also accepting cash donations to help fund the project
It’s much easier to find a seat at Harris Township Park, thanks to Eric Baker. The Eagle Scout candidate installed four picnic tables in the playground area, and eight wooden tables on two newly-created pads adjacent to soccer fields. Come try them out when the park reopens in the spring.
Eric initiated, planned and implemented the project this fall – while leading a team of volunteers. We wish Eric quick appoinment to the level of Eagle Scout.
Thanks, Eric! — from Harris Township and the ECHO Soccer Club
