Washington Park is a favorite summer place in Denison, IA. Because of the high traffic in this area, the city of Denison is continuously working on keeping the area looking good as well as safe and inviting. The students from Home Builders Institute and the Carpentry programs worked with Denison Public Works to unload 90 cubic yards of wood ground cover from a semi and then spread it throughout the playground. Rakes, wheelbarrows, and muscle were all present as this group spent the late summer morning in the Kids’ Kastle area. Doug Wiebers, assistant Public Works director, commended the Denison Job Corps students for being the perfect crew of young adults. Information printed in the Denison Bulletin Review.
Painting students were busy at the Denison fire station. Students were originally going to refresh the trim areas of the building. This would give the area a bright new look. After a few hours of work by the students, there was a change in plans. Not only the trim would receive a face lift, the students would be painting the walls of the station as well. Under the direction of Painting instructor, Todd Langlois, the entire area will have a new look. The station houses the equipment of the volunteer department. The new fire chief Cory Snowgren is so pleased to be working the Denison Job Corps program. This information was reported in the Denison Bulletin Review newspaper
