Children’s center kids tour log shelter project

Local kids from the Petersburg Children’s Center Rainbow Room Tuesday got a hands-on look at the reconstruction of a log shelter at Sandy Beach Park. The new shelter, one of two at the borough park, is starting to take shape this month and could be completed in the next few months.

Parks and Recreation employee Dave Nauman demonstrated his log cleaning and cutting techniques for eight youngsters. Joe Viechnicki stopped by and produced this audio postcard.
