   It's not surprising to know that a playhouse is going to bring joy to kids. But the story of a playhouse that Knoll Lumber will feature in Kenmore's first birthday party and parade on Sunday, Aug. 29 is special.

   In celebration of its fifty-plus years serving Kenmore, Knoll Lumber will donate the playhouse at the party. After the parade, the structure will be on display for all to see during the afternoon festivities in Kenmore Village. From there, it will be auctioned off at the Fall Auction of the Greater Eastside Boys and Girls clubs to be held Oct. 16. Proceeds from the auction of the house will directly benefit the Northshore club.

   "This is a dream come true," said Boys and Girls Club director Stu Spence. "We're doing a lot of positive things for kids."
