POLKTON TWP. — More than 40 volunteers showed up Saturday for an old-fashioned barn raising of the new picnic pavilion at Sheridan Park near Coopersville.

Members of the Tillers group from Kalamazoo helped guide the work. The Tillers teach animal-powered farming, blacksmithing and building structures like the Sheridan Park pavilion in Third World countries.
