Women’s Club of Milton donates adaptive play equipment to town
The children of Milton are now enjoying two new pieces of adaptive play equipment in Memorial Park, thanks to the efforts of the Women's Club of Milton and the Town of Milton.
An inclusive swing and a sensory wave climber were presented to the town Nov. 7. The inclusive swing provides additional support to children in need, delivering fun for everyone. The sensory wave climber allows children of all ability levels the benefit of climbing while improving sensory growth. Tactile, visual and auditory sensors contribute to the gratifying experience.
WCOM President Debby Pecoraro said a committee was commissioned from the membership of the Women’s Club of Milton to provide a donation to the community that was needed and would improve the quality of life for residents. Nancy Trask, Leah Betts, Elaine Carbone, Maryann Donnan and Carol Ann Stone researched the town’s needs with its leaders, and examined community input to decide that all-inclusive playground equipment was needed in Milton. Members learned that families had to travel to Milford to enjoy an adaptive community playground. Now, that experience is available for Milton children.
The WCOM raised the monies to purchase the play equipment through fundraising events such as the Milton Holiday House Tour, Holly Festival bake sale and its yearly bingo event in May.
The Women’s Club of Milton is a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs. The GFWC is one of the world’s oldest and largest women’s service organizations dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service.
