Students and teachers say 'thank you

June 08, 2012|Cathy Grantham | Around Maugansville

The first-grade students and their teachers at Maugansville Elementary School would like to thank those who contributed money to replace trees in the Ruritan Park.

Initially, their plan was to replace one tree, but amazingly there was enough money collected to purchase two maple trees for the park. On Thursday, May 31, the students helped plant the trees. 

The teachers would like to thank Bill Walker for preparing the ground and for helping plant the trees. They would like to thank Steve Hose for his assistance with planting.  Finally, they would like to thank Snavely’s Garden Center for delivering the trees. 

The success of this project exemplifies how we can work together to make positive changes to our environment.  Congratulations to all of you who helped make this happen.
