Tilcon Donates Memorial Stone for Strawtown Elementary School Playground Dedication
On June 18, Tilcon NY representatives were at the Strawtown Elementary School in West Nyack, NY, at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the dedication of new playground equipment. Tilcon assisted by donating the three-ton monument stone for the dedication plague which thank all the family, friends and businesses that helped contribute to the school fundraising project.
The school PTA raised the money through a variety of activities including after-school enrichment programs, a school fair, the sale of coupon books, and kid's art displays. The playground consists of a new balance beam, stepping mushrooms and musical instruments that cost $8000 with an additional 2500 spent on installation.
In 2003, Tilcon was also at the school for the ribbon cutting of the original wooden playground equipment that was installed for the school. Tilcon was one of the first local businesses to come forward to support the project. Tilcon was presented with a certificate for a Foundation-level sponsorship and donation of the monument rock for the plague.
Tilcon New York representatives that played key roles in the project were: Eric Kechejian, Tilcon Safety Director, whose two children attend the school, William Poole, Chief Operating Officer, John Rufer, West Nyack Plant Manager and Ferguson Landscaping and Steve Weiss Landscaping for donating their services.
