Editor:

On behalf of Woodsboro ISD, we would like to take this opportunity and thank each and every person who volunteered their time in helping us build our new playground awarded to us through a Rebuild Texas Grant with support from KaBoom!

The children of Woodsboro are blessed beyond measure to have this new area to play, learn and make memories.

A special thank you goes out to Pam Harris for getting all of the volunteers lined up and to the build site on build day. To all the churches, we want to thank you for the food that your parishioners provided to keep our volunteers nourished throughout the day of the build. We would also like to thank H-E-B, Dairy Queen of Woodsboro and Fast Break for their generous donation in helping us keep all of the volunteers going with drinks and various other items. Finally, we would also like to extend our gratitude to the Gulf Bend Center of Victoria and the Refugio County Ag Extension for providing activities for the children of the volunteers and to the Eagles Nest for allowing us the use of their facilities.

The support we received throughout this entire process proves what a great community we have in Woodsboro.

Leslie Garza, Principal of Woodsboro Elementary
