Construction on Gloucester Dog Park’s entrance pergola has begun and will continue over the next two weeks.
Before the school year ended, the students at Gloucester High School carpentry tech
department under the direction of Dana Griffin did one final project. They built the
boxes for the two sheds making up Gloucester Dog Park’s main entranceway pergola.
Then along came Chris Fogarty of CF Carpentry, Inc., along with Aaron Waybret, Bendan Fogarty and Phil Bazel who volunteered their time to frame the roof and pergola.
Greg Santos and David Dolloff of Glosta Builders also got into the act and volunteered
their manpower. Timberline generously donated materials and Precision Roofing is donating and installing the roof. What a community project!! And excitement is building (no pun intended!!).
The Friends of Gloucester Dog Park would like to thank all of the above vendors and
crew for making this ‘roof-raising’ event a reality.
We are still in need of a professional fundraiser to get us to the home stretch and a
PR person to publicize each of our steps. So if that person is you, please contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org We need you!!
And as a reminder, this park is being built Entirely by private donations. Please consider
donating. Make checks out to The Gloucester Fund, earmarked in the memo line ‘dog park’
45 Middle St, Gloucester, MA 01930.
Coming shortly on-line donations will be accepted. So stay tuned and visit
http://www.gloucesterdogpark.com as that information becomes available.
Your dog will love you for it!!!!
