On Saturday, January 25th, a crowd came to support the fundraising efforts to install a decent playground and basketball court at Piedmont Park Apartments. Many volunteers from Fries gave of their time to cook, set-up, serve, and clean-up the spaghetti dinner. Many members at Fries donated homemade desserts. Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough was in attendance, supporting the project that was spearheaded by our own Rob Lang. You might have even seen Whitney Lang in a WXII 12 News interview before the event. Board Vice Chair Margaret Couch was interviewed at the event by Spectrum News and Fox8. The goal of the fundraiser was $15,000: equipment ($10,000) and installation ($5,000). Congratulations to all who worked so hard, and to all who gave so generously. The goal was exceeded! Watch this web-site for further announcements.
