From Melissa Jones, Mesa Leadership 2015-2016 Chair:
The Class of 2016 selected the Grant Woods Boys and Girls Club for their project this year. Class members have been working with the on-site Manager to determine the needs. The project is ambitious with 4 areas of emphasis.
The Book Club is collecting supplies and books to replenish the library at the Boys and Girls Club.
The Playground Enhancement Team is working to provide soccer field goals, repaint the basketball court, replace the sand in the play area with wood chips, and provide a BBQ set for community events.
A mural project will allow the community and students to be involved in enhancing the appearance of the playground.
The Office Renovation Team is working to update, restore, or replace existing furniture that isn’t structurally sound.
