Many members of the Friends of Coggshall have expressed a desire to support the park above and beyond their membership. Here are some additional ways you can help.
A limited edition collection of suncatchers, featuring seven different photographed scenes from around the park, can be purchased at the following locations: The Most Office, Vincent's Florist, Mill No. 3 Farmstand, and Fitchburg Federal Credit Union. Suncatchers are also available for sale at events organized by the Friends, such as the summer concerts.
In addition, the Friends are pleased to now offer Coggshall Park decals and magnets. These can be purchased directly from the Friends.
Additional contributions to the Friends of Coggshall are always gratefully welcomed. Many members choose to contribute funds as a memorial to a loved one, while others have collected donations in lieu of birthday or other holiday gifts. Checks can be made payable to "Friends of Coggshall," and the address to which donations can be sent is:
Friends of Coggshall
Fitchburg, MA 01420
If you are sending a memorial donation, please include the name of the deceased individual, the full name and address of the donor (so that we may thank you for your contribution), and the full name and address of the next of kin (to whom an acknowledgment of the donation will be sent).
For all other donations, please include your full name and address as well as the name and address of anyone to whom you would like an acknowledgment sent.
Granite Edging Project
The Friends recently completed a project to replace the deteriorated wood edging around the walkways along Mirror Lake with a more durable granite stone edging. This was a costly, time-consuming undertaking but has ultimately significantly improved the appearance of the walkways and will reduce erosion of the paths.
