MACKAY, Idaho -- The Mackay School District is celebrating a new playground and other improvements thanks to a $100,000 grant from Lowe's.

The new playground was installed as a service project on October 6th and 7th.

The ribbon-cutting was held Monday.

Lowe's employees, school employees, FFA students and neighbors from Mackay and surrounding areas all pitched in.

The playground was dedicated in memory of Gordon Seefried, Mackay's kindergarten and physical education teacher who passed away last November, after a two-year battle with cancer.
