FRAMINGHAM – The Rotary Club of Framingham has donated $17,000 to the City of Framingham Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Division for improvements to Butterworth Park.
Park & Recreation Director James Snyder was presented the gift at a Rotary Club meeting.
This donation will help to offset the expenses associated with continued improvements at Butterworth Park, said the City of Framingham in a press release.
Specifically, these funds will be utilized to purchase and install a shade shelter that will be located next to the current accessible playground, said the release.
With this installation, Butterworth Park will offer a formal shaded area for families to enjoy, said the release.
“I extend my deepest gratitude to Mr. Richard Manelis and the Framingham Rotary Club for their continued support and generosity,” said Snyder, in a press release issued today.
In 2009, the Rotary Club of Framingham raised and donated $65,000 for professional design services, playground equipment, and walkway improvements to Butterworth Park.
