Mini-Grant Recipients

We’d like to share with our members and guests the wonderful Thank You’s we receive from students who have had the opportunity to visit our park.  It’s because of your generous donations and continued membership that make this opportunity possible.

2012

May 2012 – Mr. Rowe’s class from AD Johnston High School in Bessemer was one of this year’s Mini Grant Recipients.                                     

We received lots of Thanks and Thank You’s from the students.  We also got, “Had an awesome time,” “It was a great trip,” and “It was fun” from the students.  We’ll post some pictures on the Mini-grant page and on our Facebook page.
