The climbing wall attracted a line of youngsters eager to put on climbing gear, scale the wall and rappel down. In the right photo, 6-year-old Tommy Donovan, in white shirt, and his 7-year-old brother, Jack, dive into an inflatable kiddie pool filled with both plastic balls and plastic vegetables that was part of several PowerUp 4 Kids activities at Community Appreciation Day. Looking on is Carissa Beeksma. (Gazette staff photos by Erik Sandin)
