received a call from a special education nurse at Stillmeadow School in Stamford. Moira convinced Frank that Stillmeadow was the perfect location for our Boundless Playground.
Stillmeadow has the largest population of physically challenged kids in Stamford. Little did they know at the time that Stillmeadow would be the school that the twins would be attending. From the very beginning the support of the Mayor, parents, teachers, nurses, physical therapists, family and friends have everyone convinced that this playground was destined to be.
Frank Mercede can vividly recall the phone conversation he had with Amy Barzach, one of the co-founders of Boundless Playgrounds about the naming of the playground. Lori and Frank had been thinking of a name revolving around Jacki, since she is the inspiration for it in the first place.
Amy suggested this was the perfect scenario with Nicki and Jacki, meaning a typical child playing along side a physically challenged child that we needed to recognize both girls when choosing the name. Hence, the name Twin Meadows was derived from our twin girls and Stillmeadow School where
it will be located.
