Gray’s Beach Park Playground Rebuild Project Complete.  A Ribbon Cutting Ceremony was scheduled in October. Acknowledgement and thanks for this cooperative project and funds from Kingston’s Community Preservation Act Funds, State Budget Funds Secured by State Representative  Kathy LaNatra and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts PARC Grant Program, sponsors Empire Wine & Spirits, L. Knife and Sons, Sunshine Store, and many individual and family donors.  This was definitely a collaborative effort and we are so excited to have this wonderful playground for our community.
