Volunteer Opportunity

Arbon Elementary is looking for some assistance in remodeling our garden spot. We would like it to be a raised garden and a little bigger. We think we would like to use railroad ties.

What we need is some nice strong volunteers that would be willing to pick up and place the ties in their appropriate place. The time and date is flexible. Our Earth Day activities are not until the 19th. We just need someone or someones to go to town and get railroad ties, bring them back to Arbon and place them in a square. We will get the dirt and plant later.

After that the students and teachers would do the rest on our Earth Day activities (19th of May). If anyone is interested in helping please just call me at the school or at home. Thank you!
