NEW STAGE PROJECT
The last week in July, 2012,
volunteers of the
Kanawha Alumni Association (KAA) started rebuilding the outdoor
stage at the Burnsville Elementary School. Materials from
the old stage were salvaged for future use. The footers
were dug by the Town of Burnsville, blocks were laid on the new
foundation, and a concrete floor was poured.
The new stage is now facing the
pavilions. The main front roof beam, rafters, and roof were
installed by Darrell Brown and his Outpost Construction crew.
Funds were acquired to complete the back wall, lighting, and roof
installation. A special thanks for the countless hours
of volunteer work, the lunches that were provided by different
members, and to those who donated money. A community
effort has definitely been shown.
To those of you that have donated, we are
truly grateful for your contributions. The completion of
the new stage will benefit the school and various community
organizations in the Town of Burnsville and surrounding
areas. If you would like to contribute for the upkeep of the
stage, send your donations to the Kanawha Alumni Association, P.O.
