Pussy’s Pond Bridge in Springs will have an opening celebration 12 noon Sunday, January 27th to mark the occasion of the completion of reconstruction of the footbridge over the headwaters of Accabonac Harbor.
The public is invited to gather at the bridge on the School Street side. At the celebration, the people responsible for the reconstruction will be recognized and the bridge will be dedicated to the children of Springs. Afterward, the celebration will continue nearby at Ashawagh Hall where food and beverages will be served.
The reconstructed bridge replaces a bridge that was removed several years ago and fulfills a desire of the students of the nearby Springs School to once again have a footbridge to use and enjoy. The bridge is constructed of trees harvested from the East End and was funded entirely with donations from the community.
