WB Saul Alumni will soon be celebrating its third birthday as a non-profit. Great things come in threes!
We are thrilled with last school years accomplishments (new school sign, painting the dairy barn/Aquaponics room, $1,000 alumni scholarship, digitized FREE yearbooks and developing the alumni garden). Of course, this could not have happened without the generous support from alumni, friends and private sectors. So I ask my Saul friends and family, please consider donating to our cause. Every little bit helps. Please consider buying a brick, organize a class alumni gift, purchase a shirt, share your talents or donate!
WB Saul ALUMNI asked Saul teachers what they wanted or needed at the school. We now have over ten projects in mind, but realistically we will concentrate on three projects for this coming school year. If we accomplish more, it will be "icing on the cake'".
The three projects we will concentrate on this year are:
1. Development of barn sign area which will include new hardscaping, removal of arborvitae trees and new landscaping. Of course this will all be done by Saul Agriculture teachers and students. This will enhance the look of the school on the barn side, while giving better visibility of the mosaic on the barn wall.
2. Replacing the horse training ring. The current ring is about 25 years old and is falling a part. Labor will be done by Saul Agriculture teachers and students. This is the current ring.
3. Pole barn for protection of outdoor cows for inclement weather.
Also.... our School Information Sign has since been painted burgundy and matches the barn front door.
Thank you to all that continue to support WB SAUL ALUMNI.
We expect the 2017/18 school year to be the best yet!
