The Ferryville Vision and Promotion Board spearheaded the fundraising, organizing and installation of this new playground at the community’s Sugar Creek Park. FV&PB members pictured (clockwise, from front) on the spinner are Marsha Stross, Sherry Quamme, Don Yaeger, Larry Quamme, Joanne White and Theresa Yaeger.

Charlie and Cameron McCracken, sons of Jeremy and Tammy McCracken, of Ferryville, were among the first children to swing on the new equipment last week. They were thrilled at the chance to try it out.

The new playground features plenty of climbing, hanging and sliding opportunities for little ones ready to wiggle out their energy.
