A project that was started almost three years ago, the Cherry Valley Playground was completed this past weekend. It is finally ready to accept kids of all ages to come play!
It all began when two young ladies who are part of the Cherry Valley Girls Scout Troop wanted to get their Bronze Award. “You have to complete a journey in order to get a bronze award,” Zola Palmer, 11, said. “We had to think about what would make our community better. We had to figure out an active community service.”
“We really wanted to do something that would draw people to our community, since we’re so small,” Bailey Thayer, 12, said. “We thought if we made a playground, more people would come and visit Cherry Valley.”
HOLIDAY WEEKEND – 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Visit the town and find holiday gifts from 20+ local shops & vendors and then eat out and the local restaurants.
