The Holt County Visitors Committee presented Chelsea McIntosh with a check in the amount of $5,000 for the Nebraska Alpha Theta (Alpha Delta Kappa) Community Handicap Swing Project. The mission of the Nebraska Alpha Theta is to provide the community with a double bay handicap swing that will be installed at the Lions Club Kiddie Park.

This swing will give children ages 2 to 12 an opportunity to join their peers while playing at the park. We know as a group of current and retired teachers, that children learn many skills through their play with other peers and this swing will allow all children to play and learn together. The installation of this swing will provide the only handicap ADA approved play space for children in our community that need it.

Each spring, students are able to enjoy the kiddie park with their peers and teachers during the last few weeks of the school year. As it is, not all students have been able to participate in play with their peers. With the addition of this two Bay Handicap Swing, all students will be able to enjoy the park. Creating this space at the kiddie park provides a centralized location for students coming from both O’Neill Public and St. Mary’s Elementary School. This swing set will be available for all children to enjoy even after the school year is over.
