Molly voiceover: So, now when you drive by there’s always a bunch of kids playing on it and the community is so happy. And it brought our community together a lot too. We had everybody volunteering and even now there’s a whole bunch of people that come by just to keep maintenance on it because we’re all so proud of it.
