Ted -
My sister and I had our children at the splash pad on Monday eve, and at about 8pm, she fell off of the spiderweb climbing equipment and broke her arm very badly. The people at the splash pad were so extremely helpful to us; getting our chairs, etc, picked up and put in the car, holding my sister's baby so she could call my husband, calling 9-1-1 for us, and going as far as talking to my daughter to take her mind off of the pain while we were waiting for the ambulance. We are truly blessed to live in a town that steps in to help when someone is in need - even without being asked. The Collinsville Fire/EMT squad that responded was so nice,calm and helpful. They made my daughter feel so brave and safe.

My daughter, Paige, who is 7, broke both bones in her left forearm. It was set in the hospital that night, but we are in a 2-week waiting period to see if she will need surgery or not. Thanks to the thick padding that is beneath the playground equipment, she was not hurt worse. She just happened to land wrong with all of her weight on that one area of her arm.

I just wanted to know if you would print a giant 'THANK YOU' from me to anyone who was out there that evening and helped us, as well as the Collinsville Fire/EMT squad. I want to tell them all - Thank you so much for caring and helping people that you don't even know.
