The children in Kewaunee are getting closer and closer to having an all-inclusive playground to call their own. Community members and organizations have continued to donate funds to the estimated $200,000 project as work begins on removing the old playground to make way for the equipment so able-bodied students and challenged children can play side by side. Superintendent Karen Treml says it has been exciting to see the support the playground continues to receive.
Treml says additional fundraising events are being scheduled and grant requests are being written to help reach their goal, which is currently $60,000 away according to the Kewaunee All-Inclusive Playground Facebook page.
