David and Victoria Browning, twins who are 7, Fyre Lake, Sherrard, enjoy the new camel climber at the park.

The new playground equipment has been installed at the Sherrard Village Park.

The Sherrard Pumpkin Fest began five years ago with the dream of buying equipment for the park. Money raised from donations will continue to benefit the park and other community projects.

This year's Fest will be Oct. 3. Food, flea market, craft, commercial, antique and homemade items vendors are needed. Other activities will include a pumpkin pancake breakfast at the fire station, Little Miss Pumpkin Fest, cutest baby contest, 5-K run, a car show in the bank parking lot, kids' games and a silent auction.
