Volunteers needed at Optimist Park (Kaboom! playground grant)


The City of Port Huron has won a grant from the Ralph C. Wilson Foundation and KaBOOM!, giving funds for a brand-new playground to be built at Optimist Park. Local kids were recruited to gather and help design the new playground, giving input on what they would like. Now, they are ready to build!
