TILTON -- Kids have a new place to play thanks to Our Town's support. Two years ago, the village applied for a grant through Kaboom. It was to build a community park.

Kaboom would bring all the playground parts if the village could supply 250 volunteers, $7,000 in donations and tools to work with. The Our Town community stepped up to the challenge. They actually had 272 volunteers show up that day and the playground was built in just a day.

The park sits where Tilton's grade school used to be. People say it's great to see kids using the space again.
