Playgrounds Just Got a Whole Lot More Fun!

Taylor Electric Cooperative also  contributed a $1,000 donation to Medford Area for Tomorrow, Inc (MATI) for the installation of new playground equipment at Sackett Lake, Medford. MATI is a tax-exempt foundation dedicated to improving the Medford area. The project was an idea amongst friends Kathy Hemer and Kate Metz, both of whom have cabins on the lake and also grandchildren who play in the area. After noticing the growing popularity of the lake, Hemer and Metz thought it would be a great opportunity to make some improvements. The idea for the pirate-ship-themed playground came after they saw one displayed on Highway 29. They got busy and started fundraising and getting estimates. They also applied for grants to help fund the project.   Pictured above, before installation of the new equipment, are Taylor Electric Cooperative President and CEO Kenny Ceaglske and Project Coordinator Kathy Hemer, accepting the check on behalf of MATI
