Baird residents are striving to make improvements to their decades old park.
Residents of Baird have been raising money and making plans to revitalize their town park for about a year now. The Baird Park Project committee has hosted several fundraisers and are planning to have many more in the future.
The committee is made of a variety of citizens from moms that want a nice place for their kids to play, to retired park and wildlife rangers. They are all committed to one goal of making dramatic improvements to their park and ultimately seeing Baird thrive.
The committee has raised around $13,000 so far and have hopes to raise at least $100,000. They say that their park plan will take about two years to complete.
