Groundbreaking ceremony for playground enhancement project in Lansing is Sunday, National Children's Day

Children will have opportunity to turn shovel of dirt at groundbreaking event

June 11, the second Sunday in June, is designated as National Children’s Day. The Lansing Lions are concerned about the health and development of the children in the local area and look at National Children's Day as "a day we revive our commitment to our children and the children of our community. We, as adults, are responsible for their future."

With that mission in mind, the Lansing Lions thought National Children's Day would be the ideal time to host a dedication and groundbreaking ceremony for its playground enhancement project. The event will begin at 4:30 p.m. at the Lions Shelter on South Front Street in Lansing.

Area residents and others interested can attend the event to learn more about the project and its importance to the children of the local area, as well as how they can help. Children will also have the opportunity to turn a shovel of dirt as part of the groundbreaking ceremony. Hotdogs and water will be provided by Kwik Star of Lansing.

The playground enhancement project plan is mostly complete and the Lansing Lions Club fund raising for the project is nearing 65% of the intended goal. For more information about the project or Sunday's event, contact project chairman Arlen Wonderlich at 515-708-2279.
