A New Playground Coming Soon!
Clare Assembly of God is excited to announce plans for a new playground on our property at 3557 E Colonville Rd in Clare. The OFH Child Center Community Playground creates a safe and fun free-to-play environment for children ages 2-12 in the Clare community. This playscape will provide unstructured outdoor play, which strengthens children physically and encourages social and emotional development. In addition to all that – playgrounds are fun!
Clare Assembly will break ground on the playscape in the beginning of October, with the play equipment placed in Mid-November. We plan to open the playground to the public by Thanksgiving.
Clare Assembly received a grant of $6,000 from the Clare County Community Foundation, via the Clare County Community Foundation Community Investment Fund and the Reine M. Doherty Community Fund, to help fund this community playground. We’re thankful that the Clare community appreciates the need for quality opportunities for unstructured play for our children and we are thrilled the CCCF has partnered with us in this endeavor. The Clare County Community Foundation strengthens our community by providing leadership, fostering collaboration on local needs and issues, and encouraging a legacy of giving through grants, scholarships, and events. The grant money will be used to help purchase the play equipment.
Once open, the playground will have several hours opened to the public every day so the entire Clare community can enjoy this play space. Stay tuned to Clare Assembly of God’s social media (facebook.com/clareaog, Instagram.com/clare_assembly) to enjoy our progress and be sure to use #OFHPlayground to share your stories of fun and adventure with your Clare community kids.
