Leadership Lufkin Class No. 37 recently held a ribbon cutting at the Texas Forestry Museum to present the two projects the class has worked on over the last several months — a GaGa pit for the city of Lufkin at Brandon Park, and a nature playscape at the museum. The goal for these class projects was to increase outdoor play for children in the community.
GaGa is a fast-paced, high-energy version of dodgeball. Played in an octagonal pit, the game combines the skills of dodging, striking, running and jumping as players use a soft foam ball to tag opponents below the knees.
