The Build week, April 25-30, will be organized into 3 shifts a day:

  • Construction - Morning Shift: 8AM-12PM
  • LUNCH: provided for all volunteers
  • Construction - Afternoon Shift: 12:30PM-4:30PM
  • DINNER: provided for all volunteers
  • Construction - Evening Shift: 5:00PM-8:30PM

Two Construction Managers from Play By Design, the company hired and design and help construct the playground, will be onsite the entire build week overseeing construction. Nine construction crew supervisors will be overseeing construction volunteers. Those nine construction supervisors are: Todd Kruger, John Dundas, Paul Arentsen, Brian Oliver, Nick Lunde, Robin Pace, Mary Kay Pace, Ed Graham and Jennifer Wing. These supervisors will receive a range of volunteers - from "skilled" volunteers (those comfortable with power tools) to "unskilled" volunteers (those who prefer not to use power tools).

Help us make this dream a reality. Volunteer to help build the playground the week of April 25-30, 2017. Construction Volunteers can sign up for one 4 hour shift, an entire day, 2-3 days, or the entire build. Lunch, dinner and child care provided for ages 2 and up. We also need Food Service Volunteers for lunch and dinner. Childcare will occur at the Joseph Community Center (Tuesday-Thursday) and the Place (Friday-Sunday)
