The volunteers took a break from working on Sunday for the ribbon cutting ceremony. A crowd of a few hundred came out to hear a few words from steering committee members and a few performances from Nanuet students.
The children's committee created a long ribbon of construction paper chain links. They all ripped a chain link to symbolize the end of the 5-day build. However, the playground was not completed, although, it was coming together very nicely.
Watch the video for a quick look at how it went. One video is of the speakers and the other of the students' performances.
There will also be a commemorative DVD to benefit the playground. The DVD will include a time elapse video of the 5-day build, video footage from the first 1990 playground build and videos and interviews from Nanuet Patch since day one. They're $15 and proceeds will go back to the playground as the entire amount was not fundraised in time for the build.
