New playground equipment installed at Poulsbo Elementary

Lion Mike P. was key to getting our club involved in installing playground equipment at Poulsbo Elementary School. He is vice president of the PTSA, and his daughter attends the school. Though finished, the kids haven't yet been allowed on the equipment, which needs the final safety inspection. It's expected to be open next week.

Our Poulsbo Lions spread bark and installed equipment on a rainy February 20 (President's Day holiday). The install was completed by Lions and school volunteers on March 1 with the installation of the "web-climber." The net goes up to a height of approximately 15 feet, but the structure is designed to prevent falls.

Teachers will be given rules and will review them with their classes before students are allowed to use the equipment during recess.
