A number of volunteers stepped up  on 7/26-27 to help make the Lakeville Miracle Field  Playground  a Twin Cities first.  Many are familiar with Miracle Field baseball parks,  including Lakeville's located at King Park on Dodd Blvd. across from the Lakeville Police Department.

 

The new Miracle Field Playground is being installed right next to the Miracle Field baseball diamond.

 

On Saturday and Sunday many volunteers came to help and not all their names were noted.

 

Kari Schmitz - coaches her daughter who  plays on Miracle Field

Jeff Wenberg -  Sun Country pilot.

Trevor Michael -  Sun Country pilot

Brett Altergott -  Lakeville's second Parks &  Recreation  Director (now in his second year after Steve Michaud retired from that role in 2013)

Deb Smith

Scott Ahlers

Julie &  Jim Christian — Lakeville Rotary

John Hennen - Parks & Recreation employee

Dean &  Connor Chelstrom

Brian Roseen  -  Miracle Field Director for south metro.

 

Landscape  Structures is the product manufacturer located here in MN.

Flagship Recreation is the authorized distributor/installer represented by Charlie Colvin and

Mark McLaughlin.  Mark even had his 12 year old son helping on Saturday.

 

14 different play activities are being installed that accommodate children with special physical or cognitive needs including autism to play side by side with children without special needs.  The best example is a side  by side zip line activity.

 

The special surface is being installed next week.

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...
