Coal Creek Scholars help in their watershed

Saturday, 9 October 2010

Eight former Briceville School students got up early on a Saturday morning of their fall break and  performed community service in Coal Creek to ready Briceville Church for its official dedication of its listing on the National Register of HIstoric Places to take place on Friday, 22 October, 2010.   The interior of the church was dusted, vacuumed and cleaned.

Along with cleaning the historic church, students moved on down the Fraterville Miners' Memorial HIghway and planted sixteen trees along Coal Creek as the finishing touch of the bank stabilization project in Fraterville.
