NorthBridge Church in Antioch kicked off its spring Sharefest event Friday with volunteers working on projects in the village.

A half-dozen workers gathered at Gage Brothers Park near the Hiram Buttrick Sawmill to build an outdoor classroom to be used by the park district. The facility will contain a chalk board and three rows of seating.

Sharefest projects continue Saturday, including basketball court renovations and installation of playground games at Jensen Park, building picnic tables at Gage Brothers Park, gutter cleaning at seniors' houses and collecting toiletries for the Open Arm's Mission.

NorthBridge member Dave Snellman said Sharefest is a way to give back to the community. "We've been doing this for about 17 years. People in the church love doing it ..." Snellman said.
