Rebuilding Rounds Newsletter Feb 2012

Project Update

Thanks to your support and enthusiasm we have made some great strides in our fundraising. We are quickly approaching 20% of funds to rebuild AP Rounds Playground! We have several large donations from neighbors in the bank and local businesses have signed letters of pledged moneys and in-kind donations. It has been an excellent start to the 2012!

Please send in a donation or a pledge if and when you can.

Rachel, Tania and I appeared in front of the Stoneham Selectmen and requested to become anofficial committee of the town. This was accepted, and we now have the resources of the town at hand to handle our accounting, not to mention significant tax implications for us and our supporters. 🙂

We will open the bidding on equipment purchases through the official channels, but luckily we have several members experienced with such requests for proposals (mainly co-chair Rachel, who has managed large real estate preservation and development projects). We worked out that with her experience, and the town’s support with this process, we would gain a lot and complete the project faster.
