The Parade Ground
From the earliest days of our town, the building and grounds of our Meeting House at Lord’s Hill have been privately owned and maintained for the use and appreciation of all.
The Parade Ground, situated as Route 153 turns south towards Center Effingham, hosts a bandstand, flagpole, and Veterans Honor Roll.
This year, we are planning to start some improvement to the grounds, including smoothing and reseeding some areas in need of attention, trimming trees, and planting new ones.
We plan to enhance plantings, improve soil conditions, and repair damage to the lawn that extends back to the ice storm of 1998!
We are asking for your help in raising funds to support this work. We welcome donations of any size – help us expand the circle of stewardship by taking the time to send a check or donate online.
While the business of the town is no longer conducted in the Meeting House, as in days past, we can all join in the business of a Community as we treasure and maintain a shared pride in the Meeting House and Parade Ground.
