Rachel's Fun for Everyone Playground
posted on August 22
Rachel's Fun For Everyone Playground will have its ribbon cutting on Saturday, August 26, at 11 am at Optimist Park in Vine Grove, KY. Rachel Ritchie, the young woman from Vine Grove UMC who raised the money for the playground, was featured as an Amazing UMC Kid by United Methodist Communications.
When Rachel was 8, she wanted to build a playground that was special needs accessible so that everyone could play. She began to raise money to make it possible. Almost 5 years and $200,000 later, the dream is about to become reality!
The ribbon cutting is a big event, and will include several television crews, area representatives, and the governor, so any who are interested might want to come a little earlier for the sake of parking.
