On a rainy weekend in March more than 900, yes NINE HUNDRED, Lake Norman residents came together to make Hope Park at the Lowes YMCA in Mooresville a reality. According to several of my clients who volunteered, they did everything from assembling the custom designed swings, slides and climbing apparatus to painting flowers in cheerful colors on several play houses. Many of our struggling local builders also generously volunteered and played the critical role of organizing and performing some of the more difficult jobs.
At a time when we can all use a bit of good news, this 5-day Herculean project showed how our community will come together for the good of all, especially our children.
Thanks to the vision and dedication of Sarah Dumser, daughter of the late Doug Shierson for whom the The Shierson Society Winners Circle Foundation was formed and with the support of The City of Mooresville, Lowe’s YMCA, The Hope at the Point, Leathers Associates (who designed the park) and so many others, they will be celebrating their their grand opening on April 17th at 11:00am.
