Volunteers from the Firekeepers Elder Center put on a new coat of paint on the ball park bleachers located near housing cluster #3.  The elders have been holding fund raisers so that they can do community projects like the one above as a way to say thank you to the PBPN community.

A new building sign went up in front of the Government Center last week that drew a crowd while it was being installed.  Crews from Road & Bridge and Construction/Maintenance did the work.  Holding the sign on the right is Jake Rodewald and kneeling, left, is B.J. Jones.
