Students in the Grove FFA attended the annual 2018 City Park Restoration Project at Grove Spring Park on on Sunday, Nov. 11.
The restoration project included: painting playground equipment and facilities, picking up trash, cutting uprooted trees, and stacking firewood.
This community service project not only allowed students to have a clean and safe area to play but in addition provided people within the community the opportunity to have firewood for the winter.
“I’m very proud of the Grove FFA students who took part in the community service project," explained Garrett Bergman, chapter adviser. "This particular group of students were dedicated enough to apply the last sentence of the FFA moto; living to serve."
The Grove FFA would like to sincerely thank Mr. Dozier for assisting with this event, your support is greatly appreciated.
“I would like to make a shout out to all those hard working FFA students who stacked firewood, painted diligently and picked up numerous bags of trash, you rock!!!! ” said Mikala Sergeant, one of the chapter's officers.
