Parents at Madison are raising money to replace aging and dangerous playground equipment. On March 19, the playground was the beneficiary of the Junior League’s Fund a Need drive at their gala dinner and auction. Attendees raised $19,150! Together with the School District’s commitment they now have 70% of the funds needed to replace the old playground.

Donations are still needed. Send checks to Madison Elementary, Playground Project, 1225 Legion Way SE, Olympia WA 98501. Check out their Kaboom! project or visit the Madison-Avanti Giving Garden’s Facebook group for more info.

A playground design meeting will be held on April 13 at the Knox Building.
