Kimberly-Clark and Kaboom! have joined together to build a playground at Soaring Eagle Memorial Park, 26 Cemetery Street, in Vilonia, replacing the one that was downed by the April 27, tornado at no cost to the city. The design is based on children’s drawings created at a special design event in February.
The date for the event is Saturday, April 18. The kick off ceremony is from 8:30 - 9 a.m. The final construction phase will be from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The ribbon cutting ceremony will be held from 1 - 2:30 pm. Hundreds of volunteers are expected to help with the project. The public is invited to attend.
