The Kalona Elementary playground committee is holding a meal to raise funds for the final phase of the playground improvement project today. Kerri Bell, Kalona 2nd Grade Teacher and a member of the playground fundraising committee says they want to make sure the playground is safe for everyone. Bell says they want to put safe surfacing on the play ground instead of the wood chips that are there now for safety. The meal will be tonight from 5 to 7pm and will be catered by Zio Johnos. Tickets can be purchased at the door for $6.50 for 12 years and up, $5 for children 4 – 11 and kids 3 and under are free.
