In the Spring of 2017, a group of youth in Ball Club started to envision a community park where three old pieces of playground equipment and some grass exists today. They saw a new playground that honors their Ojibwe culture and language and is accessible for young and old alike, they saw a basketball court, and a “chill space” with seating and a fire ring and they saw a picnic area too.

Fast forward to today and the playground is designed and fundraising is underway with the goal of breaking ground the beginning of August.

On the Friday Morning Show we welcomed back Lynette Schmidt and Jollene Latvala from Children's Mental Health to talk about the misconceptions of mental health and tell us about Stomp on Stigma.

Stomp on Stigma is in its 7th year  at the IRA Civic Center in Grand Rapids on Saturday May 5th.
