Within minutes volunteers were hard at work mixing concrete, attaching wood for benches, shoveling and transporting woodchip mulch, assembling different sections of playground, building a sandbox, leveling ground for a basketball court, and transplanting shrubs for a butterfly garden.
As the hours flew by the playground came slowly to life. Soft mulch piled up around the feet of the tall black poles holding up red playground platforms. Scattered two-by-fours gathered and grew into beautiful wooden benches and picnic tables. A bare section of fence collected reds, greens, blues and yellows as it began to read "Dream it, Do it, Be it." The white and many-traingled Superdome, fully assembled in record time, found its final resting place next to the seesaws.
