Playground Cleanup & Mulching Day Success

October 19, 2018

We appreciate the people who help the school so very much!

We have the kindest community on earth!

Yesterday’s playground cleanup and mulching “party” was a big success. Thank you to the following folks for your hard work and time spent on this fall cleanup project: Mike Dellarocco, Erin Carter, Jeff Britton, Annie Grzywaczewski, Melissa Zager, Alan Mould, Kelly Young and Vicki Ramotar. (Not everyone was present for a picture).

The work crew edged and weeded out around all of the areas where the play equipment needs mulch. Then they added the new mulch that was donated by Schenectady County Soil & Water Recycling Center, thanks to the help of the Schenectady County legislature. Finally, the mulch was raked.

Additionally, we were able to put our summer playground toys away for the winter in our new storage shed. The sandbox, too, was “put to bed” for the winter.

Wild grapes, which are safe but messy for our little fingers, were cut back to be less inviting.

It looks great, and is once again safe and sound for our kids! Thank you so much everyone, for turning out!

Thank you again to the legislators at Schenectady County, especially Holly Vellano, Brian McGarry and Cathy Gatta  for getting the mulch donated, and to Jason Cass at the mulch center for donating and delivering it here!
