On Saturday, friends of Scrabble School volunteered their time and talent to complete the pathway around the perimeter at the school property: Adam Kerr (Rappahannock Landscapes) with his tractor, Marc Malik of Sperryville (retired Shenandoah National Park landscape engineer), master gardener Ed Stetson, James Raehn with Boy Scout son Austin, and Scoutmaster Roger Pierson of BSA Troop 36. They spread gravel and mulch, planted four trees and four shrubs (donated by Lowes-Culpeper) and continued the clean-up begun several weeks ago by Boy Scout Connor Forrest (Troop 36) and his father Vaughn.
The work being done is from the landscape plan approved in 2007 by Rappahannock County, which also provided the gravel for the pathway. This effort is in preparation for the gala May Day event from 1 to 3 p.m. May 1 to mark the grand opening of the Rappahannock African-American Heritage Center and an appreciation open house by the Senior Center.
Both organizations are tenants at the Scrabble School facility. The celebration is free and open to the public and all are invited to witness this historic event at the historic Scrabble School.
The Directors of The Scrabble School Preservation Foundation acknowledge the many volunteers that have helped to bring Scrabble School to a viable place of the community. Thank You.
