The OABCIG Seniors celebrated Senior Earth Day by helping clean the City Park and the Odebolt Memorial Walk. They did a great job and were a good group of kids to work with and we greatly appreciate all that they have done. Linda has been taking care of the Park flower bed and at this time she will buy a clematis and trellis for this area and she hopes to have it in by Creek Days.
Jim Scott said to go ahead and order more rope and hooks for the US flag pole. We will check with Joan on where to order this from.
Deb has been working with the Odebolt Public Library on a REAP grant for digitizing the Chronicles. The grant has been completed and we should hear some time in June if we qualify.
Elaine will work with Iowa Living Roadways on grant applications for replacing trees around the swimming pool area.
