One of the fund raisers for the original Kid Country was the purchase of a picket that would be used in the park. Purchasers had the option of engraving their name, family's name or business in the wood. Were you one of the hundreds who purchased a picket in 1992?
On Saturday July 28, for $5 you can retrieve your engraved pickets from the existing Kid Country playground. This will be a one day only event. You will need to arrive at the park and a park employee will assist you in removing your picket(s). It is only $5 per family regardless of the number of pickets you have. If you are out of town you can have a friend pick up your picket on July 28.
You will need to tell the work crew where your picket is located as they will not know the location. Again, this is a one-day only event. So, plan your outing to Kid Country soon to locate your picket.
In addition, a photographer will be on site in the morning to take your farewell picture. For a fee you can have your picture taken before Kid Country 1992 becomes history. The committee is still seeking volunteers and funding so please purchase your new picket or component, or check your calendar and volunteer today!
