There were almost as many "thank yous" as there were dollars raised for a playground at American Legion Park in Decatur when the new play area was dedicated on Wednesday.
One of the chief organizers of Mothers Of Preschoolers (MOPS), Abby Dyer, told a large crowd that the MOPS committee has raised more than $52,000, which was used to buy the expansive and expensive playground equipment plus several large loads of mulch to spread around the play area.
Building progress for the new medical office building for the Adams Memorial Hospital remains on schedule and the facility should be completed by the first week of September, according to information delivered Wednesday night to members of the Adams Health Network (AHN)Board of Trustees.
