United Way of the Tri-Valley Area has awarded Mallett School of Farmington with a $2,500 grant through its Special Projects Fund. The funding will allow the Fun for All committee to build a Walk and Wheel Path at the school playground. The path will allow people with limited mobility greater access to recreational opportunities. The playground is used year-round by the community and students. Pictured are, from left, back row, Meredith Podgurski; Cindy Pooler; Tracy Williams, Mallett School principal; RaeAnn Pike, United Way board member and chairwoman of the United Way Community Investment Team; Teresa Iverson; Carlene Lemay; holding check, Grace Lapoint and Emma Childs; and, in front, Lisa Laflin, executive director of United Way.
