Senator Kissel to Attend Boundless Playground Dedication in Suffield

June 10, 2006

State Senator John A. Kissel (R-Enfield) will attend a dedication ceremony for the brand new Boundless Playground in Suffield, which was funded by the State and built with local volunteer help. The ceremony will take place tomorrow Friday, June 16th at 10:30 a.m. at the new playground located behind A. Ward Spaulding School in Suffield. Also in attendance will be Lieutenant Governor Kevin B. Sullivan, State Representative Ruth C. Fahrbach (R-Windsor), Deputy Secretary of the State Lesley D. Mara, and Spaulding School Principal M. Angela Roman.

“This will be a wonderful day for all the young children of Suffield and the many volunteers who helped construct this great new playground,” said Senator Kissel. “It is excellent that the State recognizes the value of Boundless Playgrounds and provided the necessary funding to make it a reality for the people of Suffield. Boundless Playgrounds are wonderful projects that allow children of all abilities to play together.”

The event comes on the final day of the school year for the more than 550 students at Spaulding School, who will be in attendance to join in the celebration. Boundless Playground Inc. has gained a national reputation for building more than 80 playgrounds in 21 different states and one Canadian province that are accessible to children of all abilities. In all Boundless Playground projects, at least 70% of the play activities can be enjoyed by children with physical disabilities without having to leave their support equipment behind.

Senator Kissel is a Deputy Minority Leader and the Ranking Senator on the Judiciary Committee. He represents the seventh district communities of East Granby, Enfield, Granby, Somers, Suffield, Windsor, and Windsor Locks.
