Statement about the previous playground by Ed Roickle “The playground was built in 1989 by a group of volunteers including Roger Cook and his summer employees, Gary Foster, the Palmers, myself, and a lot of other people. Matt Potteiger had a design contest in one of the courses he taught, and that was largely the basis for the construction. Approximately $7,000 was raised from Sheila’s family, friends and local people. The property was then owned by the School District. It was sold to the Town several years later for $1. The field predates Sheila and me moving here in 1980, but I recall playing on it against the Blarney Stone team in the early and mid 70’s.”
A HUGE THANKS TO ALL OF THE VOLUNTEERS THAT MADE THIS POSSIBLE!!
