Kids at work
Karen Lindell’s SGES fourth grade class was hard at work on the first day of classes. While many places in our district are in a Construction Zone, this class is in a Concentration Zone with places to Stop and Study and Kids at Work signs posted. Everyone in her class is wearing their Construction/Concentration Hard Hat during class.
at the Library
The Sugar Grove Free Library has finished moving for new carpeting! The place looks great and everyone should come in and see it. We could not have accomplished this monumental task of moving the library without the help of Beverly Carlberg, Dart Summerson, Jan and Wes Wilcox, Dutch and Linda Strand, Faye Rouse, Amanda Messel, Carrie Guiher, Rayon Glotz, Gary and Linda West, Deanna Kuzminski, Gladys and Alton Chase, Chiyo Grant, Mary Passinger, Diane Lincoln Madigan, Bruce Messenheimer, Justin Wilkins, Nathan Campbell, and Matt Greenman.
Lunch was provided by Sue Yovich and Chase's Catering Plus during the moving out of and back into the library.
The donations of boxes from Diana Grant and Sheffield Container, along with the use of part of the conveyor system from Chase Auction allowed for an easy move to take place.
The financial support of the American Legion Post 758 and the AMVETS Post 50 provided us with the means with which to pay for the carpeting.
