THANKS FOR BELL PARK PROJECT: We would like to thank all those that helped us in Bell Park last week with our “sidewalk project.” Thanks to Payson, Donald, Thomas and Michael, we dug out the red dirt in preparation for cement. Thanks to the Community Vacation Bible School Kids who helped us spruce up Bell Park after the dig – it looked great for our “Painting in Bell Park” event. This handicapped sidewalk project is funded by a grant from the Anschutz Family Foundation.
FIELD TRIP: Next Field Trip will be a visit to the Old Town Museum in Burlington on this Saturday, June 24; leaving at 8 a.m. from the museum. Please let us know ahead of time if you plan to attend so that we have car pools available. July field trip will be “Fun in Florence” - a visit to the Florence Museum and antique shops on July 26. Aug. 30 will find us in Fremont County with cemeteries, fossils and other interesting sites. Usually scheduled for last Wednesday each month.
