Mayor Joyce Craig and Don Pinard, Director of Manchester's Parks and Recreation Department accepts a $75.000 Major Emphasis Grant from the Manchester Kiwanis Children's Fund. The funds will be used to repair and improve basketball and tennis courts throughout the city. Seven non-profits applied for the grant. Parks and Rec was chosen, because virtually every non-profit in Manchester uses these facilities along with school age kids and the general public. So, the grant has enormous reach.
