LINCOLN — Seven years ago a group of Lincoln Community School parents got together to raise funds to buy new playground equipment.
“I had at the time a second-grader, a kindergartener and a new born. And the play structure at the school was 25 years old, out of date, out of code. It needed to be replaced,” said Mary Beth Stilwell, a Lincoln parent and school board member.
Stillwell started that first playground committee with the idea of “just replacing the play structure.”
