St. Paul Lutheran Church spent Saturday morning volunteering, painting the bleachers at the high school. The Church decided they would like to do a community project.

John Turnquist, announcer for the Alta-Aurelia High School football games brought up the bad condition of the bleachers at the football field so they decided to take on the task painting the bleachers.

They contacted Superintendent Lynn Evans about their idea and was met with a firm yes.

Pastor Ryan Roehrig and his crew of 15 met Saturday morning and within the morning completed the project.

Lauren Fahr had been there on previous days fixing both sets of steps leading to the press box.

The school furnished the supplies and paint and the church furnished the labor. The group painted the bleachers dark blue and red.
