12/13/2007 - Fairmount School, Project Playground, Meeting Tonight

     UPDATE: The party for Design Day for Fairmount School's Project Playground is still going to be held tonight at 6:30 in the Fairmount School auditiorium in any weather.  Please come if you can get here safely!

     The Fairmount School Community in Hackensack is excited to announce the creation of PROJECT PLAYGROUND. Nineteen years ago, 3,000 volunteers collaborated to build a fantastic, state-of-the-art playground for Fairmount School students and all children in the neighboring communities. For many of the children, parents, staff, and volunteers who participated in this project, this remains a very fond memory.

     Now, due to changes in building and safety codes, that playground structure has to be removed. The current Fairmount Community, recognizing the vast benefits this playground has given children over the years, decided to take on this project again.

     On December 13, 2007, at 6:30pm, there will be a presentation of the proposed playground structure in the Fairmount School auditorium at 105 Grand Avenue in Hackensack. At that time, the company designing the playground, Leathers and Associates, will present a drawing of the proposed playground, which will be based on the ideas and imaginations of the children of Fairmount School.

     All members of our community are invited to attend and learn more about this exciting project. Fairmount School Project Playground invites the public to come and find out how they can help this venture become a success for all of our children.
