The playground upgrade committee, Project "UP," at Valley Head Elementary School would like to thank the parents, students, faculty, community volunteers, businesses and friends who donated to our penny drive, attended the ramp dinner, bought a cookbook, bought a raffle ticket, donated and/or bought an auction item and the friends who spent many hours spreading wood chips and securing landscape timbers.
We would also like to recognize the following who also helped make our project a success: Anonymous, Nikki Bowman of West Virginia Living Magazine; Carrie Carpenter, Chesapeake Energy; Robert Chruszcz, James Dailey, John and Hayes Eilers, M.B. Forinash, Freedom Bank, Pastor Ann and Richard Fretwell, Mary Dell Joyner, Joyce and Jim Lanter, Marine Corps League, Brenda and Rick Martin, Lindsey Camara, Parrack Insurance Agency, Point Mountain Church, Randolph County Board of Education, Snowshoe Foundation, Snowshoe Ski Patrol, Tygart Valley Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary, Upper Valley Community Education Outreach Society, Kenneth Ware and the Woman's Club of Elkins.
And, a special thanks to the West Virginia Department of Education Office of Healthy Schools and Delegates Bill Hartman and Denise Campbell for grants which provided funds to make our playground even better than we ever dreamed.
Take a drive to the Valley Head community to see the new playground - you will love it as much as we do.
