    United Way Day of Caring


    On Thursday, September 21st, over 20 volunteers from John Deere came to Hayes to complete a number of painting projects.  This outstanding group gave a fresh coat of paint to the TAG room, the Gym Balcony, our entryway bathroom, the hallway around our elevator, and a multi-colored stairway from the cafe to the blacktop.  We would also like to thank Dan Burlingame from DCSD Operations for furnishing the paint and all of necessary supplies, and Greg Lehman our DCSD painter for all of his help in the multi-colored hall!
