Building history one picket at a time
LOCAL families will have a chance to become a part of Whitsunday history by having their names engraved on fence pickets surrounding Logan’s Adventure Playground.
The concept is the latest fundraising initiative by the Parent Action Group that will enable families to have their names etched onto the fence pickets as a reminder of their contribution for years to come.
Project co-ordinator Kellie Chart said family sponsorship was absolutely paramount to getting the project finished.
“We really want families to come on board and we couldn’t think of a better way for them to have their own piece of the playground,” she said.
The fence pickets are eco-friendly and made from bamboo and recycled plastic.
Ms Chart said 18 pickets had been sold within the first four days of being on sale.
“The pickets are a wonderful legacy for local families that will be enjoyed by future generations,” she said.
Ms Chart said a number of community members have been stepping up their support for the project.
Quota International of the Whitsunday Coast (QIWC) made a donation to the playground after their successful wine, cheese and movie night last month.
Award winning chef Rod Ramsey is also getting behind playground development.
He will be serving up an incredibly delicious three-course dinner at Waterline on Shingley this Friday night.
Families can sponsor pickets for an introductory rate of $80.
Orders can be made on the Logan’s Adventure Playground website or via their Facebook page.
