            In August of 2014 Marc Johns, public works director, was evaluating Schey Park, and planning for maintenance when he and his team noticed that the sign was looking rather shabby. He did some research, and decided to reach out to the local school for some help. This conversation led to a new partnership when Mr. Wingard offered to incorporate our needs into his woodworking class. Mr. Wingard selected Brody Toman to work on a design for the new sign; the park committee then reviewed the new design and gave it a thumbs up. I was however soon evident that this project would require more than one student in order to get this sign out the door in a timely manner which is when Cade Hoffman came on board. Brody and Cade have proudly been working on this new creation, and after a visit last week we can definitely say that the project is moving along nicely. Soon the residents of Keenesburg will not only be able to enjoy our beautiful park, but please take the time to take notice of the new sign once it is erected, and if you know Brody and Cade give them a pat on the back for their efforts on behalf of the Town. The sign is expected to be completed near the end of May. The Town of Keenesburg is excited about this partnership and hopes to incorporate our local talent in other projects.
