Northern Savings Credit Union heads for the playground...

A 5,000 dollar donation from Northern Savings Credit Union has gone a long way to making playtime in Laxgalts'ap, formerly known as Greenville,  a lot more fun in the future.

Earlier this month, the Prince Rupert based financial institution provided a 5,000 dollar donation to the Nass Valley Community to put towards a new playground project, part of a community engagement initiative with a provincial Architectural organization.

Northern Savings is joining with the Architecture Foundation of British Columbia to develop the play area which will encourage young children to become engaged in architecture though play.

The playground is designed to reflect the cultural context of the Skeena region, with one of the playground items to be a multi-see saw that will include the four crests of the Nisga'a.
