MIDDLEBURY, CT- 10 JULY 2008- 071008JT01-
Betty Proulx, director of Middlebury Parks and Recreation, points out where a new handicapped-accessible playground will be installed next to the Shepardson Community Center on Thursday. Installed will be a playscape with a slide, a car, an elevated sand box, and tables with checker boards. New trees will also be planted in the area for shade. The first steps of installation are tentatively scheduled for September with help from the Public Works Department. Proulx, who became director in February 2007, was able to purchase a new playground with financial help from Thomaston Savings Bank, Naugatuck Savings Bank, the Middlebury Knights of Columbus, Ginsberg Development and Gametime Playscapes.
