POP THE BALLOON:
Hank St. Pierre, 6, of South Lancaster and Ava Viau, 5, of Lancaster play a pop-the-balloon game at a family fun day fundraiser at Smithfield Park in Lancaster Saturday afternoon. The day included children’s games, a spaghetti supper, and a concert with local band Bang on the Ear. The event raised about $3,000 for the Smithfield Park Committee. Member Lauri Corbett says that the funds will be used to rebuild the skating rink, which will include a heated structure with bathrooms and change rooms. The committee’s plans to rebuild the park include a splash pad.
