Columbus, Nebraska - January 2017

Columbus, Nebraska - January 2017

This year, the Auxiliary of Columbus #1834 voted to make the Inclusive Playground their special project. For more than three years, Jeri Furby has served as the Auxiliary’s Jimmy Durante Children’s Fund chairman and has been raising money for the project. During a recent meeting, the Auxiliary discussed the option of making this their local project for the year. With the help of the Auxiliary’s bingo event, Karen Penington, Bingo Chairman, recommended a $1,000 donation. The vote was unanimous.

Teachers and Para’s led by Megan Johnson, an Autism teacher at Lost Creek School, started working on this dream to build an inclusive play environment that would serve the physical, social, sensory, cognitive and emotional needs of all children in the community, regardless of disability. After lots of work, the dream is becoming a reality. A place where children with special needs can spin, swing, slide and roll alongside their friends – a place where they are not defined by their disability but by the joy, laughter and play of childhood. It will be housed at Lost Creek Elementary.
