Here is a short tour of the grounds:

The volleyball court is at the back of the new Recreation Area (the brown colored cement is the running track that surrounds the entire area).

In between the volleyball court and the basketball court is the picnic area. We still need delivery of the picnic tables and chairs.

The basketball court comes next. We are still waiting for benches and two sets of bleachers.
