The WCA board thanks our volunteer beach cleanup crew

Once again, Rachel Seamans gathered up a great crew to get Timmy Patten Park ready for summer. The group made short work of the annual cleanup at the playground and beach on Tannery Pond. The docks are installed and the boats are ready for fun thanks to Adam Glass, Justin Ferren, Matt Seamans and Dave Zuger. Donna Miller and Rachel went to work with rakes and cleared the beach of piles and piles of pine cones.

We are always happy to have local students volunteer. Kearsarge high school students Russell Mellott and Max Brown were welcome additions. Russell and his dad, Henry, went to work with their rakes. Max and his father, also Max, repaired picnic tables.

We are delighted to thank Jay Aubertin for updating the slide. Changing safety codes threatened to make our classic playground slide obsolete. A fan favorite to kids (and quite a few parents), we are delighted that it is now ready for play.

Finally, a note about dogs. You are welcome to bring your dog to the park before 10 a.m. and after 7 p.m. We ask you to keep your dog on leash, especially if there are other visitors and dogs in the park. Finally, please pick up after your dog. There are bags and a trash can with a tight fitting lid available.

Thank you  and happy summer to all,

Ann, Adam, Donna, Amber, De and Rachel
WCA Board of Directors

Thanks a million! The WCA playground and beach are ready for action!

The WCA’s Timothy Patten Park is looking spiffy and ready for fun. A fantastic crew of volunteers spent the morning of Saturday, April 29 hard at work. The beach and playground have been raked and the docks are out.

The WCA is grateful to the small but hardy group of volunteers who gave up their morning to get the playground and beach ready for summer. A huge thank you goes out to Rachel Seamans who organized the cleanup event.“It was a great morning.” said Rachel, “The black flies were still asleep but the sun was out.” She was ably assisted by family and friends, including:

Justin Ferren

Darlene Hoyt

Mindy Miller

Matthew Seamans and

David Zuger.

The WCA is always happy to help local high school and middle school students earn their community hours. Kearsarge Regional High School students

Carla Hoyt, and Lela Henskens

joined the crew.

The smallest helper was Rachel’s grandson Ryan.

Additional thanks go out to the Town of Wilmot for sweeping out the parking lot and to Tom and Arthur Miller from C.A. Miller Plumbing for getting the water turned on and restrooms ready.

Timothy Patten Park is open to WCA members and their guests and Wilmot residents.
