Firstoff, we’d like to extend another hearty thank you to everyone who participated in the Virtual 5K this year. In many ways, this year’s event was more of a challenge for everyone involved, from the organization of a kind of event we’ve never done before to all the runners who had to leg it out there all on their own, and while the take was more modest than previous years, you all came through for the Swinging Bridge and we truly can’t thank you enough.
A key part of the funding for repairs is being provided by the town of Brunswick. The Town Council voted to spend the necessary money to fund the repairs to the base of the bridge on the Brunswick side! Nancy E. Randolph. Treasurer of the Save Our Swinging Bridge Org contacted Brunswick's Town Manager and attended the Town Council meeting on November 2 to ask the town of Brunswick to provide the necessary funds for the repairs. She said, "They voted overwhelmingly to approve. We were so relieved that the repairs can begin Monday, November 16."
Of course, that’s the exact reason this organization has built up cash in the bank. William Brillant, Chair of SOSB, said, "We’ll run pretty close to empty when all the bills are paid." To that end, the SOSB asks for your donation again this month, because even a small donation can go a long way.
Thank you again for all your support, past, and future, and make sure to watch this space for future updates on the state of your favorite bridge!
