HOLLIS – In just over three months, the Hollis Parks Project has exceeded its initial fundraising goal of $40,000, triggering a $10,000 allocation from the town.

Excess funds received will allow further improvements, landscaping and future maintenance of Little Nichols Park and Nichols Field.

To achieve these goals, the Hollis Parks Committee sold more than 150 fundraising bricks and received many major donations from Hollis residents and businesses.

More than half of the funds were raised in July, when Arthur Lyford and Sophie Howarth Lyford, of the Art of Dentistry, presented the Nichols Challenge and matched every dollar raised by 20 percent.

The group is now meeting with local landscapers Brewer Landscaping and Custom View Property Maintenance, which are donating in-kind services, to implement the improvement plans.

The Hollis Parks Project will accept personalized brick orders until Friday, Aug. 15. They can be ordered at www.hollisplays.org. Donations can still be made by sending a check, made payable to the Town of Hollis, to Hollis Parks Project, P.O. Box 106, Hollis, NH 03049.

The group will be coordinating with the Hollis Recreation Commission for fall installation dates. Volunteers and supporters of the project can also look out for dates to help “community build” the playground this fall.
