ARLINGTON - Fisher Elementary has partnered with Bennington Beverage Outlet to offer a year-round bottle drive which started Saturday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On that day and at any other time, Fisher families and friends can take their bottles and cans to the BBO on Northside Drive in Bennington and ask to have the cash go to Fisher's Playground Fund.

Fisher Principal Deanne Lacoste hopes this will be a successful fundraiser for the school.

"Playgrounds are an important piece of a child's active and interactive learning, but like most schools, budget funding for playgrounds lose out to classroom and academic needs. With help from the community, we can continue to maintain a safe and fun playground for our whole community."

For more information about the bottle drive or to make a donation to the Fisher Playground Fund, contact Fisher Principal Deanne Lacoste at lacosted@bvsu.org or 375. 6409.
