The ADHS Fall Beautification Day will be Saturday, October 25th from 9 am - 12 noon in front of the school. Students are welcomed and encouraged to participate in this event. We desperately need wheelbarrows, pitchforks, shovels, rakes and other assorted gardening tools for the event as we have truckloads of mulch that has to be put into the gardens. For more information or if you can provide gardening equipment for the event, please contact John Sykes

So far, for the events of the day: (1) planting the NC Native Plant garden in front; (2) Plant flowers in garden areas in front of the library; (3) remove dead plants/shrubs; (4) remove dead limbs/branches; (5) mulch front gardens; (6) plant 200 azaleas ; (7) move soil/dirt to appropriat
e areas; (8) repair and update any landscape timber paths (Jag Trail, etc.) and put in mulch if we have it and (9) work on National Honor Society garden (next to Library).

Projects will be added and removed between now and the Fall Beautification Day.
Looking forward to working with you all. If you have any questions, concerns, please contact me via email, John Sykes.
