FENCE PROJECT UPDATE

We are expecting to receive the Permit from the City of Tulsa for our fence project any day now. We are hopeful that it will be in by Friday. If it is, we are a go for Saturday. If not, we will be postponed and will keep you informed either way. So, we are still calling out to all parents with fence building or general building experience. We are putting together a team of helpers (high school students and adults) for the ACA version of a modern-day barn-raising event. We have received a donation for a new vinyl fence to be constructed around the front of the Annex. We currently plan to come together to construct the fence on Saturday, October 14th beginning at 9:00 a.m. If you have experience with fences and would like to lend a hand, please contact John Ahrens at [email protected] so we can put together a list of helpers. Once this project is complete, we can begin moving our Agriculture projects, install our Gaga Pit and begin other fun projects, greatly expanding our playground area for the school and providing additional security and better-looking frontage on Sheridan.
