Please support our newest efforts to raise funds for the rebuilding of the playground. Thanks to Joe Leggett and his beautiful photos of Onset, CORE has created some wonderful items for sale this summer.

Visit Onset Bay Association's office, Union Street, for postcards, single cards, boxes of ten note cards, and matted photos.

The Spinney Branch Library on Onset Avenue is selling 8 x 10 and 5 x 7 matted photos, single cards, boxed note cards, and postcards.

Onset Bay Cafe on West Central is now selling boxed note cards, single cards and postcards.

Tarra Dean Studio, Union Street, has single cards for sale.

The Gallery Consignment Shoppe, Main Street, Wareham is selling boxed note cards to support the cause.

We are in the process of creating a website and our next fundraiser will be selling pickets that can be engraved with your name, your children, grandchildren, friend, loved one etc. Stay tuned!

is there a ballpark number for how much the pickets will cost?

The pickets will cost $40. We are in the process of setting up our website where folks will be able to either order online, or download a form to order and pay by check. There are approximately 500 pickets!

Not bitchin or anything like that: butttttt- This is at least the third"make-over" for Lopes Field. Not to mention the second for Oakdale. Whats wrong with the other fifteen or so Playgrounds in Town - Shangri La? Indian Mound?

I think there are 15 playgrounds in town that are on a list to be fixed with money from Community Preservation. I don't know how they decide which ones will be fixed first, I think their goal is 3 a year.

The majority of the money for Lopes is being raised by a private group of citizens, who are holding fundraises.

ToTell maybe you or someone you know could start their own private fundraising for Shangri La or Indian Mound, which could be added to the Community Preservation  funds for the playgrounds.

Wareham CORE (Community Outdoor Recreation Project) is indeed a private nonprofit. We decided to work on Lopes Playground first because we felt it needed immediate attention. You have to start somewhere! We are not just associated with Lopes as our name indicates and do plan future projects. We believe this is a POSITIVE thing for our community and are sad to see that as usual, postings on this site have taken a negative turn. CORE would like to thank everyone who is helping to support our work!
