The build dates are:

Friday, October 10
Saturday, October 11
Sunday, October 12
Shifts are four hours, and everyone gets fed! Why Participate in Fairmount Project Playground?
Getting involved with Fairmount Project Playground is about more than just building some slides. It's about community. This is an opportunity to work side by side with your neighbors in a way that is rare in these busy times. Everyone who works on this project will have a special bond to one another and to the community. When the build is over, every single person who helped will be able to look to the completed project with pride and know that they created something very special.
There is no greater experience than being part of a team, with each member giving their all with a feeling of good will and cooperation.
While you work, your children will be well cared for and enetertained by our childcare crew. Please indicate whether you will be using our childcare service when you confirm your volunteer shift. Children must bring a bagged lunch, but may eat with their parent when their shift ends. Every volunteer will be fed deliciously prepared meals, many donated by local food establishments.Progress on the playground...
As you know, we have been working hard to raise money for the playground. We have surpassed our $100,000 mark, and our goal has been reduced to $130,000. We are awaiting notification on grants that we've applied for, but we still need every bit we can get! If you are able to contribute financially, any and every bit will be appreciated!
There is still time to buy an engraved brick for $100.
There are still a few components available. Please contact us if you're interested in sponsoring a component .
Raffle tickets for the laptop computer, XBox 360, and digital camera will be sold through this Thursday, September 25. The drawing will be held Thursday at 7:00pm in the Fairmount School auditorium.
If you pass by the playground, you will see that it has been transformed into a construction site. Many thanks to our faithful crew who have spent the past several days clearing out old ground-cover, building saw horses, unloading lumber, and organizing supplies. Anyone willing to help with these types of pre-build tasks will be greatly appreciated!!
*Wednesday evening, October 8 and into Thursday, October 9 is Yom Kippur. Scheduling the build on this holiday was, unfortunately unavoidable. School will be closed that day, and we extend warm wishes to all those observing.
