They've been trying to raise 225-thousand dollars to fund the 700-thousand dollar project for the last couple years.

 

Now an anonymous donor has stepped forward and pledged to pay half the amount -- 112-thousand 500 dolalrs, if the community can raise the rest.

 

Gary Olereenshaw says they have until June First to make it happen.

 

"It's important for the community because the playground was built by the Kiwanis in 1992 and the wooden structure is old and tired.  And this will be new equipment.  And the key is it will be inclusive for anyone with a disability to play on .  It's gonna be first class."

 

Ollerenshaw is optimsitic they can raise 112-thousand 500 dollars to get the local match by next month.
