#389783 - 10/13/10 02:01 PM Lions Club Erect Playground at Mosquito Coast Park
Marty Online   happy

    Members of the San Pedro Lions Club and volunteers took time off their Pan American Day holiday on Monday, 11 October 2010, to spruce up the Mosquito Coast Park with a new playground. Thanks to the generous donation from the Holy Cross Anglican School, the Lions Club has a great addition that will enhance the appeal of the Mosquito Coast Park.
    Lion members and volunteers had the task of transporting all the playground parts to the park and assembling it. Just getting all the parts in order and getting the design in order took much of the morning, but the group got going and by the end of the day had a good portion of the playground erected. It will take a bit more man power and days to fully complete the structures, but the Lions Club is excited and pleased in adding such a great item to the Mosquito Coast Park.

San Pedro Lions Celebrate World Service Day

Worldwide, Lions Clubs celebrated World Service Day by conducting a variety of activities. The San Pedro Lions were no exception as they helped spiff up the Lions Mosquito Coast Park. October 8th is the official date of World Service Day, when community work is done by club members in their society.
Using materials kindly donated by (Lion) Vernon Wilson to the Lions, a play area will be put together so that children visiting the park may have even more recreational activities to enjoy. When we caught up with the Lions on Monday, October 11th, they were hard at work piecing together the playground set.

The club will install slides and swings, plant coconut palms and upgrade the facilities at the park. The International Lions Organization was founded on 1917 by Chicago businessman Melvin Jones. Currently the Lions Organization is 1.3 members strong worldwide and has clubs in 205 countries, four of which are in Belize.

A little history on the playground equipment (and donors + donors to ship it to the island)- too bad it has been sitting unused for over 2 years

Well at least it is not filling up the landfill. What a total mess the Wilson's have left.

Mosquito Coast Park updates

On Sunday, twenty-four people turned out to hold a work-a-thon to assemble new playground equipment at the Lion’s Mosquito Coast Park. A large group of on-lookers were also on hand to provide encouragement during the sometimes complicated process! The children present could not wait until the project was complete and they especially enjoyed the new slide. The threat of rain didn't dampen the Halloween spirits and lots of good food and refreshments were provided.

Mosquito Coast Park Updated Pictures

The San Pedro Lions Club has been working arduously ever since a set of playground equipment was donated to the Club. Its erection started a few weeks back at the Mosquito Coast Park, south of San Pedro Town. Here we see that the first slide has been completed and children already enjoying it. Lions Club members and volunteers are taking time off their weekends to continue working on the assembly. It's a great addition to the park and we thank the Lions Club for their hard work and Holy Cross Anglican School for the donation.

So nice to see some improvements to that park area. Always make it a "rest stop" when beach walking south. Never anyone there, so peaceful.
