Parr Hill Park Playground Dedicated

Joplin's Parr Hill Park was among the casualties of the May 2011 tornado, having to be closed due to extensive damage. Saturday afternoon, though, its new playground was dedicated by the Masonic Grand Lodge of Missouri. Grand Master David Ramsey tells News Talk KZRG what kind of work Masons across the state put into the park:

"It was both financial and physical. We donated physical labor, but we also took up collections, both in our local offices and our state headquarters. We actually got donations from all across the country."

The Lodge also donated a $19,000 check to the City of Joplin for futher improvements at the park.
