These projects included: planting flowers, trimming hedges, replacing doorknobs, unloading a delivery truck, and interacting and playing games with clients at Wedowee Senior Center. Planting flowers around the new Town of Woodland sign. Pressure washing and painting the gazebo at the park in Wadley, and painting the inside and outside of the Kidstown Clubhouse in Roanoke.
