The steering committee of the Riverside-Albert Playground Project wishes to express gratitude and congratulations to Shannon Butland and Hannah Morrissey.
At their graduation last year, they were each awarded the Ron Smyth Scholarship for their hard work and contribution to their school community. The award includes a $1000 US contribution to the charity of the recipient’s choice. They both chose the Riverside-Albert Playground Project, which is now $2429 closer to its goal thanks to the young women!
The Playground Committee, with the support of Riverside Consolidated School and the community, is working towards building a safe, accessible, and inviting community playground that benefits all children. Annual fundraisers include The Lobster Plunge, Ugly Sweater Christmas Party, and (currently in the works) a Golf Tournament.
