Community comes together for new playground

Super Save Gas received special recognition from North Otter Elementary school for donation of $18,000 toward the new playground equipment

Kimberlly Akrainetz of Super Save Gas (seated, holding photo, with her children seated beside her) received special recognition from North Otter Elementary school for Super Save’s donation of $18,000 toward the new playground equipment at the school.

North Otter Elementary’s Parents Advisory Council president Natalie Franklin (top left) and vice president Laura Tatarov unveiled a park bench at the playground, inscribed with a dedication to the Super Save company.

The playground’s official opening ceremony on Sept. 25 also paid tribute to the other contributors to the $85,000 project at the school.

In addition to the school families who contributed what they could to the project, the donors included the Nelson family in memory of the late Coleton Nelson, Milt Kruger of On Line Collision (who contributed $15,000), JD Farms (which contributed $5,000) and the Aldergrove and Langley Central Rotary Clubs (which contributed a total of $10,000). Rempel Brothers Concrete also donated delivery of free concrete to enable installation of footings for the new playground equipment.

The installation of the new equipment was performed by several dozen volunteers, including school families and Township fire fighters a month previous, just prior to the school’s opening for the new school year.
