Jennifer Schrader and Everett Nelson presented an update on the progress of the Fletcher School playground renovation to Lakewood Rotary members on Jan. 24. Schrader and Nelson both spearheaded fundraising to expand and adapt the current playground at the school. Playground equipment has been installed for younger children and children with special needs to enjoy. The next stage of the project includes a partnership with the city's Parks Department to landscape and plant trees to create a natural habitat. Teachers will be able to use the area to teach students about nature and the environment. Fundraising is ongoing to complete this project.
