Representatives of the lodge were on hand to assist with the installation of one of the pieces of equipment at the playground. Two swings suitable for special needs youths were to be installed in the larger play area in the park's east side. On hand for the formal presentation of a ceremonial donation check were Elks' member Amie Kepner, Lodge No. 656 Exalted Ruler Brett Romeiser, Park Director Josh Norris, and Elks members.
