Playground News

On June 24th the Blackman Community Club hosted the 67th Blackman Barbecue at Lane Agri-Park. This year’s proceeds went to the upgrading the current playground.

Our club reached out to a local Boy Scout Troops to find the perfect match for our project. Christine Smith, a sophomore from Oakland High School with Troop 1108, was searching for a project to earn his Eagle Scout. Christine, his father Bill Heringlake, and Scout Master David Kirkham, along with Christine’s troop, meet with the committee and began the planning of the new play ground addition. The troop worked several weekends. We added a new swing, climber, balance bean, spin seat, tunnel, new mulch and boarders. The new pieces are more appropriate for ages 2-5.

We would like to thank the community for supporting our annual Barbecue. It has been a tradition in the community for 67 years. This year we served over 500 people and more than thousands attended.
