Knight Park Playground Needs Volunteers Thursday

Are you free tomorrow morning from 8 a.m.? Help continue the community build of the Knight Park Playground. No experience necessary!

Tomorrow morning, the nonprofit Knight Park Playground Committee will continue the second phase of its build-out, and the group needs some help.

Volunteers of all kinds are needed to assist with the installation of new playground equipment. No skilled experience is necessary, says coordinator Connie Correia Fisher—just an urge to help.

"This community build is the continuation of the Knight Park Playground Improvement's work to build a new, safe, and accessible playground in ," Correia Fisher wrote in an email.

"The first phase, completed in 2010, was built in two days by over 100 volunteers and the the borough of Collingswood," she said.

For more information, call or text 609-670-2470, or simply arrive in the park at 8:00 a.m. Thursday with some coffee and a good work ethic. Visit the Knight Park Playground Committee's Facebook page for more info on the group.

Great thinking ahead, thanks Colls for the advance notice. It's past starting time when I read this and have my grandchildren (3) to care for.

This announcement was posted yesterday. There's still time to help, according to the group Facebook page this morning.

Does anyone know if they are planning on patching up the chunk of concrete on the base of the Little Treehouse on the Prairie plaque? I have been emailing and calling the Mayor for weeks now to find out if the borough has any plans to call the original company back in to repair it, but have gotten absolutely no return emails or phone calls from him. There are Michael Landon fans all over the country who are ready to write a check to get this done already. Also, the Mayor told me that the boro had ordered a replacement rope net that had disintegrated over the years for the Little Treehouse. Was wondering if that is really true or if I need to fund raise for that too so that the original design can be restored. Anyone? Thanks...

Abbe, Will you let us know when the dedication is scheduled to take place. I know several people who would like to attend.

The Mayor has no plans on having a re-dedication ceremony and I don't want to have one until the base of the plaque is fixed. I do still want to have a re-dedication ceremony, but need to ( I guess) get permission from the boro first. I would also need permission to fix the concrete base if the Mayor is not going to authorize town funds for that purpose. Don't want people to read in the paper that I got arrested for tampering with park property (lol). Everything is at a standstill till the Mayor gets back to me, which he hasn't for months now. Guess I will have tp talk to him in person to get an answer one way or another. I am still at a loss as to why he doesn't seem to care. I mean, if it was a plaque dedicated to his grandmother, he would want it to be perfect and done right. There are some Michael Landon fans from other states that will be visiting Collingswood in September to see the Little Treehouse and plaque and I would like this all to be fixed by then. Remember, these fans will probably be patronizing the shops and restaurants in town contributing to the revenue of Collingswood. So can't we please fix this already? Sorry, Shirley, didn't mean to ramble. I will make sure to let the press know if and when the re-dedication ceremony is. Would like to get Cindy Landon here as well. Will keep you posted. Thanks for your interest.
