Aurelia City Park get new playground equipment

Friday, July 2, 2010

Thanks to a joint effort by several groups, the children of Aurelia as well as any youngsters visiting the community, have several new pieces of playground equipment on which they can play.

The elementary students at the Aurelia school started things off for the drive for new equipment, as they collected and donated $100 worth of coins for that project to the city at this spring's "100th Day of School" celebration. Aurelia mayor Jim Ebel, representing the city, matched the students' donation that day and several local organizations, including the Friends of Aurelia, the Aurelia Kiwanis Club, and Aurelia Municipal Utilities, have since pitched in financially as well.

The equipment was installed recently, just in time for the kids to enjoy it during their summer vacation.
