Redimix Teams Up with LRCD to Build Playground
TILTON, NH: Redimix Companies provided the boost that Lakes Region Community Developers (LRCD) needed to build a playground at their Lochmere Meadows affordable housing development in Tilton. LRCD raised $38,000 over 18 months, which was enough to pay for the playground equipment and the wood chips required for surfacing. LRCD did not have enough to pay for the site work and concrete footings needed to hold the structures in place. Redimix Companies GM Tim Vaughn and his team jumped at the chance to help. “We are dedicated to giving back to our communities throughout NH. Giving local kids the opportunity to get active and have fun safely and close to home is an ideal project for us.” ProQuip also donated equipment to safely complete the dirt work and spread woodchips.
Forty-seven families, with 50 children under the age of 12, live at Lochmere Meadows, which is just off Route 3 near the Lochmere Country Club. The playground provides a safe and convenient place for the kids to play and get exercise. It also serves as a gathering place where parents can get to know each other. “We are so grateful to Redimix for stepping in to help us build this amazing play space and community gathering spot. Without the Redimix team, we would not have been able to get this done,” said Carmen Lorentz, Executive Director of LRCD.
