ROCK SPRINGS — Woman’s Club of Rock Springs GFWC presented buddy benches to Stagecoach Elementary on June 3, and Northpark Elementary on June 4.
Buddy benches are a place for children to go sit if they are new to town and need a friend or just need someone to play or talk with.
Woman’s Club has donated three in Rock Springs this school year with one going to Desert View in the fall. One more is being completed for Washington school in Green River. The chairman of the club’s Juniors’ Special Programs section Sue McGuire found the benches and coordinated the completion.
Walmart donated $100 for the last three benches and discounted the previous bench. Carter Wiberg assembled and painted the benches, Sherwin Williams discounted the Spar Urethane. Margaret Tucker made and donated the signs.
Woman’s Club of Rock Springs appreciates its community partners and the opportunity to help our schools and children.
