The Granville Recreation District now maintains the playground and has determined that the structure needs to be updated. We will once again work with Leathers and Associates to rebuild Wildwood in the spring of 2018 so that generations to come will continue to have a safe and beautiful play space. The Kiwanis Internationals mission is “Serving the Children of the World” therefore the club has always felt passionate about the playground and has continued to help maintain the structure by sealing the wood as a yearly service project.
The Kiwanis Club of Granville will be hosting their annual pancake breakfast on Saturday February 18th, 7:00 AM-2:00 PM at St. Edwards Catholic Church in Granville. Proceeds from this year’s Pancake Day will be used for the Wildwood Playground renovation project.
Kiwanis Pancake Day will also be the kick-off event for the GRD’s planning for the playground renovation. The GRD will be presenting an overview of the project on Sunday February 26th, 7:00-8:00 PM at the Granville School District Office (130 North Granger Street). If you would like to volunteer to be part of the committee, please plan to attend the meeting or contact the GRD at 740-587-1976.
