Brechin PS fundraises for new, $30,000 playground

On Sept. 27, staff, students and the community of Brechin Public School held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate their brand new playground. For the past two years, a dedicated group of parent and community volunteers helped fundraise over $30,000 for the purchase and installation of the equipment.

The Brechin Parent Council would like to thank the Community Foundation of Orillia and Area (CFOA), Brechin & District Lions Club, Brechin’s Wild Wing restaurant, Keggers on The Water, Tony’s One Stop Tire, Brechin Firefighters, Gus Pilger and Pilger Equipment, Allison Reed and David Laird, the Cipolla Family, the fundraising team from Lagoon City and other anonymous supporters for their generous contributions.
