Elle loved playgrounds. She enjoyed both the one at Fairfield and at Young. So when this project came to the Fund's attention, we decided to make a generous donation to the project.
In response, the Parks Committee unanimously voted to name the new playground after Elle.
The playground, which is located in a city park on North Street, will officially be known as "The Eleanor Clare Paye Memorial Playground,” after the Saco Playground Committee received “a generous donation” from the Eleanor Clare Paye Charitable Fund, [John] Sherman said this week.To say we are appreciative of this would be a massive understatement. It is a remarkable gesture. And we are extremely thankful to the Parks Committee for their decision to remember Elle in this manner.
“This is a great way to honor a special little girl who bravely fought against cancer,” he added.
We will continue to update you on the progress of The Eleanor Clare Paye Memorial Playground in the months ahead.
