Charlie’s Playground

Charlie’s Playground- August 2021

This indoor playground for the Northern Berkshire Early intervention Program was built in honor of Charles V Parham (1945-2019). Charlie and his wife Roxy Schneider have been supporters of this building project for children right from the start. Our first big fund raiser was a music party hosted at their home in 2012, that raised substantial funds to get the project going.  After Charlie’s untimely passing, his family announced that they would like donations in Charlie’s memory to be sent to the project, and that generosity has funded this playground. This funding means we will have materials to keep building into the future. I am so thankful to Charlie’s family for giving me the opportunity to build and donate in Charlie’s name.  Charlie dedicated his working life to education and loved to play!  He was a wise, kind and generous friend and is sorely missed by all who knew him!!

I want to thank Brian Gulick who donated his time and expertise to help make sure the playground was properly installed in North Adams. Brian has assisted with every playground I’ve built since 1978!!!
