Volunteers helped with several projects at the Old Town Hall site, thanks to a grant from Home Depot.  Jason Schoonhoven, store manager at the Chantilly Parkway Home Depot location, read about the development of the Old Town Hall in Pike Road site in the town's newsletter.

After speaking with Mayor Gordon Stone about the goals for the park, Schoonhoven applied for the funds on behalf of the town. The Town of Pike Road was selected to receive $20,000 worth of materials and labor to complete the projects.  The grant came from the Home Depot Foundation as part of its Team Depot initiative. 

Approximately 60 associate volunteers from around the River Region worked Friday to complete the work on several projects.  They worked on the pergola at the Veterans Memorial, landscaping around the pavilion and memorial, installing a fence at the softball field.  They also laid fifty pallets of sod on the field, built two dugouts built for the  field, and also trash can enclosures.  A community resource center is also planned for the site, and will include office and meeting spaces for community groups as well as a museum highlighting the history of the Pike Road area.
