#WyoStrong: Leadership Fremont County builds play area at Eagles Hope

    #WyoStrong stories, brought to you by Wyoming Community Bank, highlight Wyoming perseverance, ingenuity, creativity and resilience.

    The 23 students in the Leadership Fremont County (LFC) Class of 2020 have dedicated their efforts to raise funds, build a play area, and (hopefully) put in some volunteer hours at Eagles Hope.

    Each Leadership Fremont County class breaks into groups and select different community service-oriented projects. The Class of 2020 all chose to help Eagles Hope Transitions.

    This week, class members Krystal Braddock, Michelle Scott, Brandon Bailey, Jason Byrd, Cory Rota, John Larsen, and Bob Shellard worked on putting together a play area for the kiddos that live at Eagles Hope with their parents. “There wasn’t a lot for kids to do,” Krystal explained. “We decided to make a playground.”

    Recently, LFC presented Eagles Hope with a $7,000 check from the money they raised as part of this “class project.” While the end of the class is drawing near, they hope restrictions will continue to loosen and the class members can get together and help continue learning and preparing Eagles Hope Phase 1 to open by June 1st.

    Donors for the playground items include:

    • Bailey’s Tire & Oil donated the tires
    • Ace Hardware & 2M donated sand for sandboxes
    • Icons & Rebels donated the swingset
    • Murdoch’s donated cattle panels
    • Wright Tree Service donated wood chips
    • Hadley Post donated railroad ties
