We’re waiting for spring at Copake Memorial Park, where a CGBR Placemaking grant will pay for installation of new playground equipment! The equipment has arrived, it’s ready to go — except for that minor obstacle of winter! The $1,300 grant was awarded to CGBR by the National Association of REALTORS, following an application by Lindsay Lebrecht, broker with Copake Lake Realty.
The playground equipment, now stored safely in Copake, is designed for older children, improving the park as a magnet for children of all ages.
Among those who gathered recently for delivery of the equipment: Lindsay Lindsay LeBrecht, secretary to the Park Commission; Kelly Miller Simmons, Town Councilperson and liaison to the Park Commission; Liana Roberts, chair, Copake Park Commission; and Park Commission members Santa Claus, a.k.a. Chris Quinby, Joanne Delamater, Terri DeRocha and Stephanie Poucher, with their young friends Wesley and Langdon.
