On November 16, 2018, the Waynedale Lions Club teamed up with Maplewood Elementary School, the PTA, and other local organizations to raise funds to assist with the purchase of additional playground equipment at Maplewood Elementary. In the past year, the school lost a number of their equipment pieces due to age and years of use.

The project served 275 fish and chicken dinners. Recently, the Waynedale Lions were able to present a check for $1,000.00 to school representatives, including Principal Jennifer Evans, which will be used to purchase new playground equipment.

Frank Robinson, President of the Waynedale Lions Club and lead organizer of the event stated, “Maplewood Elementary School has lost outdoor playground equipment to normal wear and tear, along with age. They are also in need of smaller items such as basketballs, kickballs, etc. Each year, our club looks forward to community projects that continue our ongoing partnership with Maplewood Elementary School, and helping the school to meet some of the students’ additional needs.”
