WANTED: More and more online messages supporting new playground equipment at Burwood Park!!

If you’re reading this, why not write your note today?

So far, 65 Norwoodians have jumped in with online messages supporting the Norwood Recreation Commission’s request for $10,000 from the Hamburger Helper Co. to replace 30-year old dilapidated playground equipment at Burwood Park. 66 is an excellent start, but let’s knock it out of the park. We’re competing with many other communities for the same $$$’s. One way we can get a substantial edge is with high volume online notes that prove we’re solid hometown supporters of the cause.

Councilperson Vic Schneider is certainly doing his part to encourage community wide participation. He produced and placed about 300 promotional flyers on the Pike at Anna’s, Frisch’s, The Bluebird, and Busken’s. He also gave all the details about the effort, including the website where everybody can post their comments, at last night’s council meeting. Just click on My Hometown Helper, and you can add yours. And don't forget to either email this blog or The Hometown Helper page to your Norwood friends and relatives so they can post, too.
