The Neighborhood Guys and Gals 4-H Club received a $500 Community Improvement grant from Farm Credit Services to spruce up the Scott County Nursing Center (SCNC) shelter area.
The guys and gals of the group were tasked with everything from going to Home Depot to pick up the materials to make the repairs to actually doing the work.
It included scraping and painting the white posts, painting the floor of the gazebo, painting the employee bench and making some new outdoor benches for the shelter, a work in progress at Winchester High School. The 4-Hers were expected to help with the supply purchase and the actual prep and paint work at SCNC.
“We had a beautiful sunny day and accomplished what we had planned,” Troop Leader Pam Hembrough said. “The kids did a fabulous job.”
Post got about four coats of new paint and Larry Hembrough, also a Troop Leader, repaired the wooden trim on each post, caulked the posts and reconstructed the birdhouse.
When they were finished, members moved the patio furniture back in the shelter and family was able to meet there while they finished clean up.
“There might be a few white polka dots on the sidewalks, but 22 paint brushes later, SCNC is ‘spruced up’,” Hembrough said.
“Thank you to the parents that assisted and thank you to Farm Credit for the grant.”
