A few good mulchers

For haggard and exhausted parents, the end is in sight. Durango schools are back in session Mon., Aug. 20 – that’s a mere three weeks away. But before the kiddos step though those hallowed halls of learning, School District 9-R is asking for a few good citizens to step up to the plate.

This Sat., Aug. 4, is 9-R Community Cares Day, and the district is asking parents with a couple hours of time, some work gloves, a rake and who aren’t afraid of a little dirt or sweat for help in “beautifying” school grounds. Although district crews have been working on the grounds all summer, they still need help laying down cedar mulch as well as raking and tilling the mulch.
