The Loreauville Community Project held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the first part of its new playground equipment at Loreauville Park Sunday.

The group raised $12,000 since December and landed a $20,000 grant from McKee Foods (the maker of Little Debbie snacks) to complete the first phase.

Mayor Brad Clifton said the initial installation is designed to be expanded, with other segments being added as the project raises more funds in the future.
