Thanks to Steven Thornton's Eagle Scout project, Londonderry Township is sporting a new play area adjacent to the soccer field. It's a GaGa Pit! For those who are not in the know, GaGa means “touch, touch” in Hebrew, and is considered a safer alternative to dodge ball. GaGa Ball is spontaneous and addictive fun for kids of all ages and athletic abilities. The game combines dodging, striking, running, and jumping, with the objective of being the last person standing. Players hit the ball at each other with their hands, and are eliminated if the ball strikes them on or below the knees. (Click here for the official rules of the game).
The Supervisors wish to thank Steven Thornton for coming up with the idea and his helpers for the construction. The execution of this project is excellent and the Township anticipates many hours of joyful competition. Wonderful job, Steven.
