UPDATE! The Billings Gazette ran this follow-up article about the playground’s dedication ceremony on August 26, 2014.
From the Billings Gazette:
As about 10 employees of CTA Architects Engineers crowded around a piece of playground equipment Wednesday, bolting metal arms, supports and other parts together, their boss stood off to the side and chuckled. “Apparently, it takes more architects and engineers to put together a merry-go-round than it does to build a multimillion dollar building,” joked Scott Wilson, CTA president.
It’s an effort he was happy to see though, as it all will go to benefit autistic children living on the campus of the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch — a local nonprofit that provides mental health treatment and support to children, youth and their families.
