Hollis playground effort gains community support
During Monday night's meeting of the Board of Selectmen, project spokesman Anna Birch shared an update on the project's progress.
Birch said the area is definitely in need of an upgrade since it's frequented by citizens of all ages.
"It sounds like a great plan," said David Petry, chairman of the Board of Selectmen.
As it stands now, the plan is to raise funds privately for the bulk of both projects rather than use taxpayer monies. Ultimately, members of the Hollis Playground Project are hoping to raise somewhere between $30,000 and $40,000.
Selectman Vahrij Manoukian encouraged members of the Hollis Playground Project to attend an upcoming Rotary Club meeting.
