DANVILLE — Children helped contribute to landscaping additions at the Bloom Road location of Danville Child Development Center.

Youngsters enrolled in the summer school-age program worked together to build planter boxes.

They were part of a grant request for funds, from Merck Cherokee Pharmaceuticals, toward a playground and landscaping there.

The children also practiced valuable skills such as reading and following directions, problem-solving and basic carpentry and engineering, according to Center Executive Director Diana Dixon.

A DCDC Golf For Kids Day will be held Aug. 10 at Frosty Valley Country Club,  along Bloom Road.

Proceeds will benefit children who attend the center.

Tee times are available on a first-come, first-serve basis from noon to 2 p.m.

Sign-ups are being accepted at the country club’s pro shop at 570-275-4700.

The cost for greens fees with cart for non-members is $45 and $30 for non-members greens fees for golfers who are walking.

For every non-member who golfs, the country club will donate $5 to the center. For every club member using a cart, the country club will donate $5 to the center.

The Bloom Road location of the center will hold a Movin’ & Groovin’ event to raise funds for the playground at that location.

It will be from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Aug. 13 with the school-age children participating in a variety of activities they choose for one hour.

The goal is to raise $5,000 this year.

Donations are being accepted on the center’s Razoo site.
