Fundraising for the New BNS Train is On Track!

As noted in a previous blog post, Bannockburn Nursery School is planning to replace its playground’s beautiful wooden train that, after twenty-five years of heavy use, is bound for the great roundhouse in the sky. In the weeks since BNS began to ask friends and neighbors to help Save the Train, over $5,000 has been raised, which will cover a significant portion of the new train. The fundraising efforts will continue this month with the nursery school’s Spring Fever Gala and Silent Auction at the clubhouse on March 19 at 7:30 PM. Tickets are available at http://www.bannockburnnurseryschool.com or at the door.

BNS is thrilled with the huge response and outpouring of community support so far. Ten current and alumni families have given at a level ($250 and above) that will have them featured on a dedication plaque to be installed with the new train. If you want to lend your support, visit the school’s website to Save the Train or mail or drop off a check to the school. As of now, BNS is on track to install its new wooden train this spring. All aboard for another twenty-five years of fun!
