The 2022 class of the Walker County Chamber Leadership program selected the LaFayette Library's Kids program for its community service project. Class members attended special tours to learn about Walker County's government, education, business and public services and the impact made by the Chamber of Commerce.

Members assembled outdoor play stations, a bench, assembled and mounted outdoor musical instruments, painted, planted a tree and landscaped. Modern Woodmen of America gave a $500 community grant for the project, along with support from the library. The 6th Cavalry Museum donated a chalkboard easel. Wade Hutcheson with UGA Extension worked with the group to plant the tree.

Class members are Ben Canedo with Roper, Randy Gibson with RTC, Rebecca Hamilton with UGA Extension, Chris McKeever with 6th Cavalry Museum, Jessica Parrish with TVFCU, Dale Powell with Walmart, Kathleen Salkled with LaFayette Library, Jessica Stoker with Synovus, Mark Turner with LaFayette High School and Dwight Watt with GNTC. Chamber members Susan Tankersley and Kristy Lawson oversee the program.

Thank you, Leadership Class of 2022, for giving our children an exciting and interactive outdoor learning space.
