Felling a Tree & Building Courts

by Sarah Davis, Vanguard Coordinator

Two big events happened today & Vanguards have helped out in big ways with both:

1) The big tree behind the dining hall fell to make way for the new Heath Center.

2) Our broomball courts are being framed up.

This morning, they tackled the basketball court while this afternoon they’re getting after the court by Loberg. Once the weather gets a little colder, we’ll start filling them in, and icing will become a nightly chore!
