Ribbon cutting ceremony Oct. 28
The new playground for kindergarteners through second graders is getting a workout with students having fun every day on the size-appropriate equipment. Built by volunteers, and with funds raised by the school’s PTO and grants from the Polk County Community Foundation and the Tryon Kiwanis club, these young children now have safe, comfortable place for climbing, swinging, jumping and sliding together.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on Sunday, Oct. 28 from 3-5 p.m. to celebrate the new playground. Called a “Block Party” for the whole community, it will include free food, entertainment and inflatables for the children. Everyone is welcome to come enjoy the new playground and celebrate the completion of this project to improve Polk Central for the families in our community.
