The vision for a new playground for the youths in grades 4 – 6 is beginning to establish a strong base.

The Fox Creek for the Children’s Fundraising Society received several donated items, from various community groups, to use as prizes to generate funds for the new playground in a raffle.

The Society then donated these items to Fox Creek’s Parent Council to use in a raffle. The society was unable to do a raffle, as it does not have interest in the property of the playground.
