Ten and five years ago in The Daniel Island news
TEN YEARS AGO - Excitement builds over Park Day play houses!
The October 4, 2007 issue of The Daniel Island News featured an article about Park Day on Daniel Island. At the time, hundreds of children and their families hoped to be among the lucky ones to win one of four new play homes that were being raffled off at the event. The play homes were custom creations from four local builders - John Wieland Homes, New Tradition Homes, Structures Building Company, and Phillip W. Smith GC, Inc. In addition, the J.D. Smith Company constructed and donated a dog house for the raffle to benefit local animal rescue organizations.
