In collaboration with the Middleport Community Association and the Meigs County Health Department, the Meigs County Council on Aging created one of the few intergenerational playgrounds in the region. The playground fostered an environment where both grandparents and grandchildren are active together. MCCOA's Executive Director stated, "Within a few weeks of installation a local father and mother brought their adult son who has muscular dystrophy and uses a wheelchair. He was able to play the NEOS and appeared to be enjoying it a lot. His mother told me that they visit the playground almost everyday." Congratulations on making your community a fun, active place to live and play! ... See MoreSee Less
