REJUVENATING PORTAGE PARK – The Portage-du-Fort RA began removing old play structures from the Red and Beth Farrell Memorial Park, September 9, to make room for a new 25 by 30 foot Little Tikes play structure that is expected to be installed the week of September 11; the park's rejuvenation was made possible through RA fundraising, donations from groups like the Artists de la Rivière, and a $7,000 government grant. A large swing set made by Hayes Manufacturing will also be installed. The original sign installed at the park when it opened 20 years ago was salvaged. Some of the old structures are being moved to the ball park. The R.A hopes to have the park complete before the end of October.
