"We're hoping to raise the other $15,000 we need and hopefully have the playground completed for August," said Garvey.
The next big fundraiser for the project takes place May 16 when the Lewis Fish and Game Club will host a chicken barbecue.
The event will feature a raffle with several items donated by local businesses. Among the top prizes is a package featuring two round-trip plane tickets from Plattsburgh to Boston, and two tickets to see a Boston Red Sox game.
A June 5 Playground Carnival Day is also being planned to take place behind the Lewis Town Hall, which will feature food vendors, kids' rides, Penelope the Clown, and a performance by E-town Express.
"Both Dave Blades and [Elizabethtown supervisor] Noel Merrihew have volunteered to be in our dunking booth," said Garvey.
