The Kiwanis Club of Lafayette recently presented a $25,000 check to the Woodvale Elementary PTC for help with the schools much-needed new playground structure. The Woodvale PTC raised more than $35,000 over the past five years to build momentum for the project and the Kiwanis of Lafayette graciously stepped in to assist them in making the project a reality. Present to accept the donation were Ms Monique Vidos, Woodvale Principal, Ms Brandi Comeaux, Woodvale PTC President, and a handful of students and PTC members.

The project will be built upon the conclusion of the current school year and will be ready for use at the start of the 2017-18 school year.

In addition, because of Kiwanis’ involvement, the project's contractor Kincade Recreation (who previously partnered with the club to build Parc Independence), has agreed to donate four benches with Kiwanis logos for the project! The playground equipment will be used by students, as well as others who participate in after school programs and activities.
