East Hill playground ribbon cutting set for Friday

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the recently completed playground at Canajoharie’s East Hill Elementary School is set for 11:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 30 at the school.

Three years in the works, the new playground was funded by community donations, grants and fundraising. Community volunteers completed work on the new playground during a work weekend earlier this month. The playground features two areas with equipment and play space for grades pre-k through two and three through five.

Fundraising for the project began in 2013 with the first phase of the construction being completed in the fall of 2014. The grade 3-5 section was completed this fall.
