The Eleanor Clare Paye Memorial Playground: Build Day and Dedication

On October 13, members of the community came together in a Build Day to finish building the Eleanor Clare Paye Memorial Playground at Young School in Saco. It was a lot of hard work (and even more mulch), but the results were fantastic.

Then on October 15, the playground was officially dedicated in a short ceremony which culminated with the students of Young School getting to try out the new playground.

The Fund wants to thank not only John Sherman and the Saco Parks & Rec Playground Committee for voting to name the playground in Ellie's memory, but to all the volunteers, donors, other sponsors, KaBOOM!, Let's Play and the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group for making this a reality.

Below are a few pictures taken at the Build Day on October 13 and the dedication on October 15. You can read a news story about the dedication here and view the Saco Parks & Rec Playground Committee Facebook photo album of the Build Day here.
