The Record Herald editorial (August 4, 2009)
Not much comes free these days, but loads of children, parents and grandparents found an entirely free day of games, food, pony rides and other entertainment Saturday when they trekked to Greencastle's Jerome R. King Playground Fun Day 2009. Our society has entered an age where simplistic outdoor entertainment many times plays second fiddle to gaming systems and computers for a generation of electronic-savvy, sedentary whiz- kids. It is important that the community continues to support this free, annual event that gets kids outside, active and enjoying a simpler side of life. Playground Fun Day most often is hosted by the playground's board of directors, which is a non- profit entity funded by tax-exempt contributions and money received from an annual fund drive. Eveery three years, the festival falls under the auspices of Old Home Week, also a non-profit, all- volunteer endeavor. Generations of families in the area enjoy Playground Fun Day. We hope the community continues to support the playground and its board so that this and similar activities can be hosted for years to come.
