Nantyr Shores Secondary School completes Buddy Benches
Last fall we received a donation of wood from “Sawmill Sid”. The wood was rough ash and with that material we constructed 5 benches for the “Buddy Bench” Project. Working with this wood was a challenge but a great learning experience as we were used to working with finished wood. The process to make the benches took many weeks of construction and then another couple of weeks to sand them down and stain them. Now that we have the benches finished they look really good and we are hopeful that the schools accepting these benches will be grateful to receive them. We hope that these schools put the benches out in their yards for everybody to see and use. We are glad to have had the chance to help the elementary schools in our community.
