This facility will house a childcare center, public pre-school classrooms, and a community recreation center. This project has been named the YES Project. These recorded meetings at the town office are available to view on the town website.

The Giving Tree

We are excited to share that our fundraising campaign is underway! The estimated cost of this project is $2,165,750 for construction plus fit out of the space. We are seeking $600,000 in funds to be added to the $1,561,000 the Foundation was awarded in December 2022. We hope to raise $200,000 from private donors and private foundation grants; $200,000 from corporate donations and sponsorships; and $200,000 from public donation and fundraising events. All raised funds for the YES Project will be held in a separate bank account to be only used for the construction cost short falls and fit out. Please consider making a donation or a donation pledge for 2024 by completing a Donation/Pledge form available at the Town Office.
