WORKDAY AT THE SCHOOL, please help.
When: December 10, 2016…all day
Where: Francisco School, 7165 NC Hwy 89 W, Westfield, NC 27053
PLEASE put “WORKDAY AT THE SCHOOL,” SATURDAY, DECEMBER 10th on your calendars and spread the word. Work will be going on all day. We’ll be cleaning the gym. The county seems to be moving closer to a decision to permit some community use of the school building in the fairly near future. They asked for an application; it has been submitted, and county staff continues to be very helpful. The use would still be limited by the capacity of the current septic system, but we could work with that. Should good news come soon, we want to be ready to start using the gym right away. That’s why we’re scheduling the work day. Thanks Texie, and Horace, for your terrific leadership on this. Please come and bring your work gloves…any help is welcome.
Many people have asked how the First Annual Francisco Farmfest went. It was fantastic! And since the Our Communities Foundation was the recipient of the proceeds from the Martin Haunted Hayride also, a total of $9102 was collected after expenses to fund the Francisco School Project. Thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, friends and neighbors who attended the events, Our Communities of Northwest Stokes, Francisco Presbyterian Church, and Mike and Amy Martin. The funds collected are crucial to the repurposing and developing a feasible and sustainable plan for our Francisco School. Thanks also for the much needed food contributions for the Northern Stokes Food Pantry. A more detailed report can be seen below:
