Congrats! It's a Park!

We're thrilled to announce that Monday, March 27th , the vision for a park in Berkshire Township moved closer to reality when the Township Trustees voted unanimously to allocate $20,000 in seed money to get underway. It was agreed a play area for young children and a beautiful garden area for adults and kids alike will be the first priorities moving forward.

The Park committee met on the 30th to review plans and schedule individual committee meetings. This is only the start. We hope others will step up and become involved in this lasting and important project to enhance our community for generations to come.

In addition to the Township's concept, the Trustees agreed to the installation of a Born Learning Trail within the planned park. Geared to help parents of very young children connect with their kids in a fun, interactive and educational way, Berkshire is proud to be one of the first recipients of this exciting project sponsored by United Way and the Women's Leadership Network of United Way. Stay tuned to this newsletter and our website for further details and how you and your family can volunteer and get involved!
