Members of two local sororities, Laureate Rho and Beta Sigma Phi recently provided funding for two benches which have been set up at the two main playgrounds in Willow Creek Park.  These are gifts that will keep on giving, season in and season out.

Both benches are in close proximity to the playground equipment on the west and east sides of the park, providing some relief for the legs and backs of parents and grandparents who accompany their children to the park and want a nearby place where they can sit, watch and enjoy the youthful antics of their offspring.

Judy Turpin remarked, “Our thanks go out to Rick Akers and his Parks and Recreation Department.  We made the donations, but his organization made the purchases for us and handled all the installation.  We’re grateful for their assistance.”
