Move that bus!
The Bennett Elementary School playground in Detroit received an extreme makeover this weekend from Beaumont’s department of orthopedic surgery and Playworks Detroit volunteers. The volunteers spent their Saturday afternoon painting and creating a beautiful, vibrant playground for the students.
This project began as a vision of the late Dr. Harry Herkowitz, former chairman of orthopedic surgery at Beaumont.
“Dr. Herkowitz had a vision and the Playworks project was only the first step,” said Tammy Breece, Dr. Herkowitz’s former assistant. “We have a stellar department and he knew we could come together as a team and do something great for the community. I’m grateful to everyone who came out on a Saturday morning to make Dr. Herkowitz’s vision a reality. ”
