BUTTERFIELD, MN

The Butterfield Community Fund, otherwise known as Bettering Butterfield, is a non–profit looking to revamp the small community of Butterfield.

The non–profits mission is to better the community of Butterfield for fitness, family, friends and fun.

The organization played host to a carnival themed Park makeover kickoff.

Hundreds showed out to support the group by participating in carnival games and offering free–will donations.

"Our goal is to start off by building a new playground.  We want to take the old existing playground which is unsafe for the children at this point and build a new playground along with redoing the volleyball courts, tennis courts and the basketball courts," said event organizer Wynette Haler.

Haler went on to mention that the new park will have activities for ages 1–101.
