Playground Clean-up Day!

looks like it’s time for another

Crocker Farm Playground Clean-up Day!

Saturday August 25th from 8:00am – 1:00pm

(raindate Sunday August 26th)

The PGO invites the Crocker Farm community to pitch in and spruce up the playgrounds before the children arrive for the first day of school!

We need your help to spread mulch, rake and weed around plantings, sand and paint the play equipment, pick up any trash, etc.

Come when you can and stay as long as you are able – all help is appreciated!

Please bring garbage bags, gardening equipment, sand paper, gloves, etc.

The PGO will provide light refreshments.

Your children are welcome to come and help, but please be prepared to keep an eye on them as we are not providing childcare.

Contact Erika with any questions ( or 256-1045)
