FVHD was proud to be a part of the well attended groundbreaking ceremony for the upcoming additions and building-wide renovations at the Freehold Borough School District's Park Avenue School Complex, which consists of the Park Avenue Elementary School and the Freehold Intermediate School. The ceremony was held on October 12, 2017 at the Park Avenue Elementary School Gymnasium.

Speakers from the Freehold School District Administration included Superintendent Dr. Rocco Tomazic and Board of Education President Dr. Michael Lichardi. Attendees also heard the heartfelt words of Freehold Township's Mayor J. Nolan Higgins, New Jersey State Senator Jennifer Beck, New Jersey Assemblywoman Joann Downey, New Jersey Assemblyman Eric Houghtaling and Interim Executive County Superintendent Dr. Lester Richens.

On display for guests to view were images of the site plan and floor plan, as well as conceptual renderings, of the proposed additions and renovations. Additionally, photos from the 1956 dedication of the original school building could be seen.

Following the speeches, administrators, board members, distinguished guests, professionals and others posed for the official shovel ceremony at the location of the future gymnasium/media center/classroom addition.
