LETTER: Volunteers greatly appreciated

As USD 420 gears up to move through the final stages of the Building for the Future projects, examples of the pride local patrons have in Osage City Schools have been made apparent in many ways.

Local businesses and patrons have volunteered services and efforts to help complete a storage facility at the new track and field complex. Hamms Quarry assisted this project by donating material for the building pad, Scott Williamson donated equipment and time in transporting rock, Brad Meek, Chad Smitha, Chris Ford, Brad Ford, Coleton Mitchell, Joe Harris and Danny Meek donated labor to pour the concrete floor of the building. Other examples of this pride have included Jim Pearson donating equipment and labor to work ground and Gary Thompson, his time and equipment, to plant grass in the areas surrounding the sports complex facilities.

Most of these individuals are Osage City High School alumni and show great commitment to our schools and community. These efforts and the efforts of others who have given their time, resources and talents to Osage City schools do not go unnoticed and are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for supporting USD 420!
