The Buffalo Valley 4H Club and the Free Will Baptist Association Youth volunteers spent time last week helping with many chorses at the visitors center located at 201 First Street, Talihina, Oklahoma.

 

The Buffalo Valley 4 H Club planted flowers removed unwanted weeds and grass, planted new flower and donated and put down new mulch.

 

The Free Will Baptist Association Youth also weeded flower beds and they cleaned the inside of the building, washed the windows, picked up scattered rocks and stained all but the top of the Pergola. The Free Will Baptist Association youth that will attend camp in two weeks will stain the top.


All this help really means a lot. It has made the visitors center look more inviting and cared for. Thanks so much to these two organizations for all their help.
