COMMUNITY GARDENS AT THE DOG PARK STARTS TO TAKE SHAPE
THANKS TO DOG PARK MEMBERS & DELAWARE VALLEY GARDEN CLUB
Recently the Delaware Valley Garden Club donated a $2k memorial bench in the memory of Alice Furfaro, and a further $600 of flowers and shrubbery to the new Hancock Community Gardens, which are part of the Hancock Hounds Dog Park 501c3. The final gardens will feature bluestone walkways, the new memorial bench, and soon a 20 foot Pavillion with picnic tables. The Hancock Area Chamber of Commerce built and donated a custom Information Kiosk with a grant from Delaware County Economic Development, and the Dog Park received a Mee Foundation grant for $2500 to expand the Dog Park to include the new Large Dog Run which tripped it’s size from last year. The town of Hancock will be contributing the land via land license to the dog park, and bluestone as well as other types of bluestone from the Zahler family to make the walkways and trim the new pavilion columns. None of this would be possible with the generous spirit of the town board, the Mee Foundation, the Delaware Valley Garden Club and the Hancock Area Chamber of Commerce.!
