MARINE CORPS AIR STATION BEAUFORT -- Stepping up and lending a hand goes a long way for the community. Marines, sailors, teachers, parents and children volunteered to
help beautify the grounds at Galer Elementary School, April 20.
The collective volunteer force carried out tasks such as raking leaves, trimming hedges, and planting flowers around the front entrance.
“We’re making sure that everything is pleasing to the eye for visitors, parents, students alike,” said Stuart Wheeless., administrative officer for Laurel Bay schools. “Certainly our students are always our first concern and we want to make sure that the environment in which they go to school is pretty and pleasing for their enjoyment and their learning experience.”
“The end result is a campus that the whole community can be proud of,” said Wheeless.
