Friday's Fences ~ # 29

 This is the fence at our local playground...it's called "Kids Kingdom". When they built it back in the late 80's, you could make a donation n get your name on one of the slats.  I wasn't living in this area back then..but I would have loved to buy a slat.
Post a picture of a fence or of something through a fence and sign up below.
Thanks for joining in the fun and hope to see you back soon!

a great idea for a fundraiser. i think i'd like a slat better than a brick. :)

Ebie said...

This is so cool! Like TexWisGirl said, great fundraiser!

Could they make more room for additional slats?

Beth said...

wow, that is a neat idea. (:

Lois Evensen said...

I would definitely had bought a slat. And perhaps even loving weeded around it every summer.
I am on holidays for a few days but will attempt to visit everyone when I can borrow a computer again. Have a great weekend.

A personal name on each slat was a great way to promote the underwriting of the project. I like your shot of this unusual fence.

I've never seen that done with a fence! In our town, they bricked the sidewalks, and residents "bought" bricks with their names on them.

Tanya said...

oh i love that! that reminds me of when we lived in georgia...they built a new elementary school for my kids and sold bricks that you could buy and have names engraved on them. i bought one for my 3 boys who were going there but we moved before we got to see the finished product :( somewhere at walker park elementary in monroe, georgia is a brick that says "breese boys" on it!

Regina K said...

I would love to buy a slat also!!!
