The Next Generation project relies heavily upon volunteer support of the community. Individuals and groups are invited to assist in a wide variety of areas during the week long build Monday, October 6 through Sunday, October 12. There are three shifts daily Monday through Sunday, 8 AM to 12 PM, 12:30 to 5 PM, and 5:30 to 9 PM. Parking is available in the grass lot north of the park, with limited parking available at First Christian Church and Immanuel Lutheran Church. Individuals are encouraged to come at shift start times and register at the Volunteer Tent located at the original ValPLAYso parking lot. If individuals have 3/8” power drills or impact driver drills to loan, they are a much-needed resource. Loaned tools will be checked into the “Tool Crib” and they will be returned at the conclusion of the build in the same or better shape. More information is available online at www.valplayso.com.
Community members are encouraged to volunteer with the upcoming ValPLAYso – The Next Generation project, like Izzy Murphy, a Children’s Committee representative. The community-build process gives all a chance to be a part of the hands-on project from Monday, October 6 through Sunday, October 12. Over 400 work shift slots are still waiting to be filled, and power drills are still needed on the project spearheaded by the Valpo Parks Foundation, a 501(c)3 entity that provides opportunities for the community to support the continuing legacy of high quality experiences provided by Valpo Parks.
