4-H’er works in club service project with school service day

Gracie Cheville, a member of the Indian Creek Circles 4-H Club, was combining service work for her 4-H club with the service work day for Collins-Maxwell Schools on Saturday, May 7.

Cheville organized a project to help make the school look nicer by creating a flower garden on the sloped areas outside the front of the Maxwell school building. She was given grant funds to help with her work by DuPont/Pioneer and Wal-Mart.

An important part of her project was to place a memorial stone in the flower garden in memory of Chase Moehler (Lawrence), who died in a crash in February of this year. Chase was a junior. Gracie’s dad, Doug, said Nevada Monument gave a discounted price on engraving the stone.

Doug also said it was great that C-M Interim Superintendent Dr. Tom Lane invited them to do their project in conjunction with the school service day.

“He said let’s make it a one-shot deal, so we’d have more help,” Doug said.
