Fundraiser and open house will feature boardwalk planks for sale
By Alan Wheelock
Friends of Plympton Parks will be hosting an open house and fundraiser on Saturday, October 4th, from 4 PM to 7 PM at Reunion Farm, 271 Main Street, Plympton. The purpose of the event is to help raise the needed funds to construct a boardwalk in the town’s newest conservation area – Churchill Park. The Friends of Plympton Parks have named this campaign “Build a Bridge to the Ridge,” which refers to the fact that the new boardwalk will carry visitors across the wetlands areas of Churchill Park to the beautiful uplands of Cato’s Ridge, a large conservation area contiguous to Churchill.
Attendees will be able buy a plank in the new boardwalk and have it inscribed with their family, pet, or business name, wedding anniversary, birthday, remembrance of a loved one, etc. Donation for each plank is $50. Friends of Plympton Parks members will be on hand at Reunion Farm to take orders for planks or to provide visitors with order forms. The open house will feature live music, light refreshments, a bake sale, and detailed information about the project. More information about the “Build a Bridge to the Ridge” campaign can be found at plymptonparks.org.
