PLAYGROUND PLANNING MEETING

We have already raised $68,200 from our partners:  Antietam Valley Community Partnership: $40,000. Lower Alsace Township: $20,000 and Mount Penn Borough: $8,200.

Can we make it to $100,000?  With your help we can!

On Wednesday, June 6th, at 6:00 pm in the Rec Center in Carsonia Park, we will be holding a public meeting with our playground designer to get input from the community as we design the new playground.  Our hope is to get volunteers to help us install the equipment and make this be a playground paid for and built by members of our community.

Much of the existing Tot Lot at Carsonia has been in place for more than 35 years.  It is time for a new playground in our community–our kids deserve it!

Your donation will go to the Recreation Commission of the Antietam Valley and only used to support the Playground Project.  Thank you for your support!
