PICKENS, MS (WLBT) – Volunteers in Holmes county rolled up their sleeves to do prep work for a long awaited community play area.
The Martin Luther King Jr. Association will install new playground equipment at their location in Pickens on Highway 51.
Saturday volunteers came together for a Day of Service to spruce up the playground.
In June juveniles burned the playground equipment.
Controversy followed when some on the MLK board wanted to repair the club house instead of replacing the playground.
People from the community prepared the site for the installation of the new playground equipment.
