Credits: Fox Hill Playground

DENVILLE, NJ-- Summer is on it's way. The kids will be out of school and looking for things to do outside. One community in Denville is seeking help to raise the funds neccesary to rebuild a community playground that had fallen apart and was removed in 2012.

Mary Townend was one of the hardest workers on the Fox Hill Playgound when the idea first came about. She gardened and was a diplomat. One of Townend's daughters, Marion T. Wells, recently shared with the Fox Hill Community just how important this playground is.

"That area was an extension of our yard and our neighborhood. We all played in the trees, swung on the swings, trekked through the woods, played kickball, and planted flowers, too! Thanks for your efforts to revive this space. Your efforts will create wonderful memories for your families,"  Wells stated.

As the community is raising the funds for this special project, there are many ways that the entire Denville community can help. For $10, purchase a Fox Hill Playground car magnet. Magnets are available at Fox Hill Merchants and Denville Vacuum. For $20, purchase a 50/50 raffle ticket, the drawing will take place on July 11. Tickets are available at Denville Vacuum.
