ALBION – Steve LaLonde, husband of the late Kathy LaLonde, accepts a plaque from Albion Mayor Dean Theodorakos, right, in appreciation of Mrs. LaLonde’s many years of volunteerism with Albion youth programs.

The Village Board announced tonight it will add playground equipment this spring at Pee Wee Park, which is the younger children’s section at Bullard Park. The new equipment will be in memory of LaLonde.

LaLonde was a member of the Albion Recreation Committee. She also spearheaded efforts to develop a long-term master plan for the Bullard Park. LaLonde was 54 when she died on Oct. 6 after fighting cancer.
