    Mothers propose alternative to Skyler Kauffman memorial playground

    Two Souderton mothers have the early go-ahead from the borough council to move forward with a scaled-back playground project as an alternative to plans for a Skyler Kauffman memorial playground.

    A family dispute caused plans for the memorial park to fall apart earlier this year and a group started Project Safe Playground to raise funds to re-dedicate the West Chestnut Street playground in honor of the 9-year-old Souderton girl raped and killed in May.

    Instead, as the Times-Herald reports, Tara Cupitt and Jennifer Ruggiero want to spearhead a community project to renovate the playground piece-by-piece — something borough council praised.

    In terms of a memorial for Kauffman, that could be worked out after the playground work beings, and could something as simple as a tree, pending family approval.
