Thanks to the dozens of Bemidji Rotary members, the crew from Northwoods Landscaping & Recreation volunteered to help construct a new playground at the Village of Hope on Friday. The project will be completed today with landscaping, officials said. The $16,000 project was funded, half by the local rotarians, the Rotarian District No. 5580 foundation and several local businesses.
