Boy Removes Dead Cluster Tree

Noa and his dad, Koi, pose next to their conquest

Very special thanks to Noa Hallonquist for helping out the cluster by removing a dead tree using his dad’s truck.  The tree has been an eyesore on Park Glen for over 6 months — and Noa just couldn’t stand it anymore.  The cluster will follow up by filling the hole with dirt and seeding the area in the Spring if necessary.  Thanks Noa!  And thanks to his parents for giving him the keys to the truck.

New Tot Lot Swings

New Tot Lot Swings

There are new swings in the tot lot (the one between Farsta and Scandia)!  The old ones served our neighborhood well, but were showing signs of age.  New mulch was also installed around the swings and the other existing structure.

The new swings are part of a longer term goal of replacing the other pieces of equipment.  Our youngest cluster members deserve the best!
