The following 4 excellent projects were presented at the October 23rd dinner.

  1. Hillcrest United Methodist Church Bundled in Love Blanket Ministry
    Marcia O'Neal
    We make blankets for the children at Children's Hospital.
  2. Chapman Highway Dogwood Trail Enhancements
    Dede McCoy Wilkerson & Susan McKinney
    Our plan is spruce up and beautify the entrance and a few other common areas along the Historic Chapman Highway Dogwood Trail. This Trail was established in 1957 and is one of the original Dogwood Trails.
  3. Ogle Avenue Bus Shelters
    Jim Gray - ETPRI
    We propose building a pair of bus stop shelters on Ogle Avenue to accommodate those using the KAT buses on Route #45. We are especially concerned with those who are using the new FISH Hospitality pantry located in our building and being forced to wait in the open -- rain or shine for the hourly bus service.
  4. Spring Hill Elementary School Outdoor Asphalt Game Boards
    Jessica Bocangel

    Spring Hill Elementary is a Title 1 school that serves 471 students, and the school itself was built in the 1950’s. The outdoor play space at Spring Hill is both vast and sparse, which is to say, there is a lot of open grassy areas coupled with a very minimal amount of dated playground equipment, a track, and a basketball court. This project proposal is inspired by the vast outdoor play space, coupled with the fact that many teachers, including the Physical Education coach, lament that few students know how to play outdoor games anymore.
