The new playground at Elliott Park is almost complete. Please mark your calendars for the volunteer work day, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., on Saturday, Nov. 21. Volunteers (and wheelbarrows, rakes, shovels and pitchforks) are needed; go to the website <www.signupgenius.com> if you would like to help. Use the email “email@example.com” to find the event. After the required fiber mulch is spread, opening festivities will start at 3 p.m., with live music and the Shenanigans food truck. All are welcome to join the celebration as Sewanee’s second community park becomes a reality. While it is very exciting to see the area take shape, it will not be until Saturday, Nov. 21, that anyone will be allowed on the equipment. For safety and liability, the community is advised to not enter the playground until it officially opens.
