A far cry from the snow days of mid-January…the sun came out and the temperature rose a touch above 70; just in time for the Grand Opening of the Fort Mitchell Playground. The Fort Mitchell Volunteer Fire Department served up some excellent hot dogs and burgers while youngsters tested the new equipment. The playground, situated along HWY165 in the front yard of the FMVFD/ Fort Mitchell Community Center, was constructed in late January in not so clement weather by the Russell County Parks and Recreation Department and volunteers county-wide. A grant from Wiregrass Resource Conservation and Development, submitted by Russell County Commissioner Cattie Epps, covered the cost of the materials. The FMVFD leased the property without cost to the county for the park site.
Russell County Probate Judge Alford Harden helps Ayden Hoskins, age 5, take a turn on the zip-line; while Russell County Commissioner Cattie Epps gives Ayden a big high-five for his first ride on the new zip-line at the Grand Opening of the Fort Mitchell Playground. Once Ayden got the idea, he got Josiah Riley, age 6, on the ride. Jaxson Cox, 18 months, shares a hot dog with grandma and mom after a quick slide on the new equipment and Ava Aurigema, age 2, brought her painted rocks for other kids to find and post on Facebook. Alise, 10, and nine-year- old Jasmine Vazquez reach new heights as they test-drive the swings with a little help from dad.
