A car meet that will include over half a dozen local organizations has been put together to raise money to help Newburgh's Bread of Life Community Church build a playground.

Car Meet On November 7th

Sunday, November 7th from 1 PM - 4 PM, several groups will converge to help fundraising efforts for a new playground at the church located at 363 Lindsey Road in Newburgh via a car meet.

According to Rich Thompson, organizer of Mainely Money Pits, all the groups involved are excited to help out a town limited with outdoor space dedicated to play space for kids: "Me and the 8 other groups are really excited to make this happen for them. We were told there is only one playground in the town on the school property and, with school in session and COVID going on, they shut the park down to only the school. So, we want to step In and make a fun safe place for all the kids to play."

Envisioning the playground

Thompson states that the vision of the playground is a small playground with swings, slides, monkey bars just stuff for kids to be kids. They want to also include a covered area for the adults. For safety, they want to have a fence surrounding the playground and wood chips on the playground. Additionally, the want to include a handicap accessible swing.

The groups and organizations involved in the fundraising efforts are local and all about things with motors: Familyties, Mainely Money Pits, Gunmetal Meets, Team Asylum, Central Maine Muscle Cars, Stay Lifted Empire, Gage's Auto Care, Blueneck Motorsports, Ahearn's Auto & Salvage.
