The original bonfire was built and in place on Wednesday. Our ag department worked hard getting the wood in place for this community event. Sometime late Wednesday night, this bonfire was vandalized and destroyed. However, school personnel and community members came to the rescue Thursday. I wish I had the names of everyone that contributed to rebuilding the bonfire. I do know that Jack Wallace, Haskell Cook, Donald Slay, and Doug Wendell spent a good portion of Thursday morning hauling and stacking wood. I know that Chance Sutton offered all the wood that we needed for the bonfire. I know that we had parents and students bring in pickup loads of wood yesterday afternoon. And, I know that the bonfire last night was a great success.
Thank you to all the people that came together to make this bonfire happen. I hope everyone has a great homecoming weekend!
