The Norton playground is freshly painted and ready for several years of four square, hop scotch, and whatever fun games kids create on three giant targets. A huge thank you to Jeff Clark, Scott Neuf, Kyle Gardner, Asher Gardner, Ben Sheppard, Michelle Castne, Aarti Gupta, and John and Tara Glotzbach. It's done, even with our crazy weather of late!
