The event was a great success with hundreds of children having a great time.  The playgound was constructed by Where Angels Play as a donation after Hurricane Sandy.

The organizaiton began in response to the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut at the Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012.   20 students and six adults were killed that day.

A wonderful event on a beautiful day.
