Kiwanis hang sign to track fundraising progress

Knoxville — The Knoxville Morning Kiwanis erected a sign Tuesday morning to track the group's fundraising progress for a new playground at Young's Park. 

The group is planning to install new playground equipment, a wall and other ammenities at the park in two phases. The first phase is estimated to cost $70,000 and the second $200,000. 

Part of the goal of the playground is to include handicap accessible equipment to allow all children the opportunity to play and enjoy the park. 

The sign includes "meters," and drivers along Highway 14 can glance over to track the Kiwanis' fundraising progress.
