Weekend update from Kamakana Playground

Things are shaping up at Kamakana Playground. The work at Higashihara Park continued last week and through the weekend. Here’s the latest update from community project manager Cliff Kopp:

Saturday, April 4, Day 23: Here is what we did today care of the Hawaii Drug Court program volunteers and the Hawaii Carpenter’s Union Apprentice Program. It’s 37 days to go, and we would like to have much more support from community volunteers, especially those with basic carpentry skills, and a few good rock wallers.  We are scheduled to open May 12, but we need much more support from the community to achieve this goal. 

If you want to help show up, or get ahold of Kopp at 989-7072 or e-mail kamakanaplayground@hawaii.rr.c….

Now the concrete is poured, it's time for  the second pavilion to take shape. Work this weekend was on the roof, with the assistance of the Hawaii Carpenter's Union Apprentice Program.
