The founding member and organizer of Park Moms was Susan Monagan, who relocated to Ithaca in 2003. Robin Haggart, who continues to do a fantastic job organizing the concert series and Jesse Leaman, joined us after Susan moved. The original advocacy to Councilman Ken Fisher was to secure funds to reclaim the abandoned waiting pool and convert it into a sprinkler area. The letter-writing/postcard campaign secured $500,000 for the sprinkler renovation. This year’s concert series was funded by Boro Recycling with the assistance of Assemblyman Joseph Lentol. The generous support of Councilman David Yassky is providing funding for the picnic tables and the anticipated retoolimg of the sprinkler area.
