Lange School gets spruced up for the year
Despite clouds and threats of rain, over 150 people attended the annual Lange Work Day and Picnic on Saturday, Aug 22. They included Rotarians, Lange parents, incoming Lange Kindergartners, community members and members of the Oakwood City Schools faculty and staff.
Volunteers mulched, weeded, trimmed, pruned, planted, clipped, and watered. People provided their horticultural skills to turn long-forgotten flower beds into works of art, painting skills were put to the test to make the building and equipment look brand new and sheer determination was displayed in “spades” when mountains of mulch were moved throughout the property.
Additional recognition goes to The Oakwood Florist for their generous donation of mums used to beautify the Lange grounds. The energy and commitment of all the participants provided the needed “sunshine” on an otherwise cloudy day.
After the work was completed, new friendships were made and old friendships renewed while attendees enjoyed a picnic lunch of expertly grilled hotdogs, potato chips, carrot sticks and, of course ice cream.
Thanks to all for making the
Lange Workday 2009
such a success!!
