The Cuba High School Leadership Class Lends a Hand in Historic District
Rebecca Hester’s Leadership Class gave up some of their after school time to pick up trash in historic Cuba and prune some of the planting areas by Frisco’s. Donning some orange safety vests, they completed one of the service projects that the Leadership Class requires.
The class earlier adopted the street in front of the school, and they pick up trash there as part of the City’s & Viva Cuba’s Adopt-A-Street program. Mrs. Hester contacted Viva Cuba and said that her class needed other projects and recently they worked in the historic district to make Cuba a cleaner place to live and do business. Viva Cuba, and we hope everyone else, appreciates the work that these kids do. We hope their good example and leadership will inspire some adults to keep Cuba clean as well.
An Eagle Scout Project Helps Beautify Cuba
Eddie Dunakey is only 12-years-old, but he isn’t waiting to become a teen ager before he works on his Eagle Scout Project or before he helps Cuba’s beautification projects.
On Labor Day, a flag raising ceremony took place in front of the Cuba Head Start Building. Dunakey and his Troop 463 worked together to erect the flag and complete the landscaping around it. Before the flag raising, Dunakey gave a speech thanking the community for their support. Rep. Jason Smith was on hand to speak a few words as well.
A Cuba Free Press article “Eagle Scout project dedicated at Head Start” gives more details on the event.
As always, Viva Cuba is proud of these groups of young people. If your group completes beautification projects, please let us know so that we can recognize it.
