CMS eyes bleacher replacement
Upon the maintenance department’s last efforts to fix them, it was apparent that they could not longer be fixed.
The bleachers found in Chilhowee Middle Schools gym are over 40 years old. They are wooden and have been repaired and refinished a number of times. Upon the maintenance department’s last efforts to fix them, it was apparent that they could not longer be fixed. Chilhowee has the opportunity to get chair-seating bleachers at a great deal. To get chair seating for the whole gym will cost $5,500.00. The school would like to purchase the chair seating from Northwest GA Trade Center as they are looking to sell what they have. To completely furnish the gym in new bleachers would cost $75,000.00 for just one side of the gym. The amount of chair seating we could purchase for $5,500.00 would completely furnish our gym in safer seating for all events.
To make our gym a safer place, the middle school needs your help. The school is in need of monetary donations to complete the purchase of the bleachers, volunteer labor to help tear out the old bleachers and install the purchased ones (this would be a great service project for youth groups!), food donations for the people working (such as pizza or burgers and drinks) and heavy trailers (like ones used to haul heavy equipment) to go to Dalton to haul bleachers to Benton.
If you can help in any way, please contact Pam Hindman, Chilhowee Middle School PE teacher and coach by phone at 423-593-8344 or email at email@example.com and let her know how you can help.
Unless the community gets involved with this project, we will not be able to make this happen. Chilhowee Middle School is a great place to learn and grow. Show our students that you care and volunteer!
