Installed with a lot of help from friends
From 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 16, 15 volunteers and 2 supervisors finished installing the new play structure for the park, installed new swings and put down fresh mulch. Robert Pettinelli Junior and Senior of Miracle Recreation supervised and directed the build. The hard working volunteers included Mark Hall, Bonny Carmicino, Tyler Mell, Kathryn O’Hara, Darren Critz, Barton Chew, Mike and Robbi Martin, Chris Sandlund, Justin Edelson, Jay Philippi, Paul Mooney, Bo Bell, Lisa Sabin, Seth Gallagher and Dinesh Kapoor. Other volunteers who provided food and drink: Katy Cox, Silvia Gaugler, Cecily Hall, Shannon Keegan, Eileen Caulfield, Robbi Smith, Beth Edelson and Eugenie Milroy.
The Friends of Tots Park are grateful to Rajay Bagaria for being the force behind the project. Kathleen Foley, Eugenie Milroy, Beth Edelson, Robbi Smith, Megan Philippi and Eileen Caulfield fundraised and worked, since 2008, to bring this project to fruition. The many generous donors included Mike and Karen Speller, Cold Spring Lions Club and Ken Kearney of Tern Construction. In addition, the Village of Cold Spring and the Highway Department helped tremendously with this project, Mary Saari, Seth Gallagher, Ed Trimble, Charlie, Russ and Robert in particular.
The park is closed until Monday, July 18, to give the concrete under the structure a chance to dry.
