Banner Reservoir director pleased with fourth AmeriCorps crew
A fourth team of AmeriCorps volunteers recently completed a three-month assignment in Jackson County, working on a variety of projects, including several at Banner Creek Reservoir, it was reported.
The nine-member AmeriCorps team met with the Jackson County Commissioners during their meeting Wednesday, along with John Kennedy, Banner Creek Reservoir director.
“This is our fourth group, and, without a doubt, they’ve been the most productive and most fun,” Kennedy told the commissioners. “Everyone stepped up in different situations, and they were anxious to learn things they didn’t know.”
The volunteers worked on a variety of projects at the reservoir during their stay in Jackson County, including painting a large mural on one side of the bathhouse at the RV campground. It took two volunteers four weeks to complete the mural scene.
