HHE Courtyard Looks Amazing
Thank You Volunteers!
Many thanks to the volunteers who have worked so hard to mainta
in our courtyard. Seventeen volunteers worked in the courtyard on four different days during the month of October. Tasks completed were pressure-washing the picnic plaza concrete, tables, walls; cutting and edging the grass, removing weeds from the beds, and installing 7 cubic yards of mulch! They also trimmed all the crepe myrtle trees surrounding the playground. Whew...that’s a LOT of work!! Our volunteers are as follows: Jon Beym, Will Harper, Shauna, Brandon, and Copelyn Hodges, Kayce and Kaylynn Hammett, Anita Johnson and Nathan Hansen, Laurie and Matt Morrison, Chris Sloan, Roberto, Ofelia, and Beto Vital, Happy Parker, and Michelle Stevens. A “call in” list of volunteers has also been formed. This list is for parents and grandparents who can’t help monthly, but will be available for special occasions.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact
Michelle Stevens at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Happy Parker at email@example.com.
