Cabbage burger sale provides $3,000 to Bayard track project

A host of Bayard American Legion Members, American Legion Auxiliary Members and community members led by Mrs. Beverley McDaniel contributed 453 hours of volunteer service preparing cabbage burgers for sale in support of Bayard Track Project.

Over forty individuals came together on two separate weekends to prepare, package, and distribute cabbage burgers in support of the track project.

Travis Miller, Superintendent of Schools at Bayard, indicated his appreciation to all of the community members who spent time or donations to the cabbage burger sales in saying, "This community effort has served as an inspiration and as an example of the sweat equity that many caring members of the community have demonstrated in support of the project and this community. Community members from every age group worked together as a team on this cabbage burger sale. It is great to have members of each generation come together to contribute to this effort that will benefit the entire community."

During the ongoing capital campaign, the fundraising committee has found great receptiveness to the private/public partnership with several individuals, community organizations, and area businesses coming forward to provide support for this important health and sports project.

It is hoped that regional community members, alumni, and area businesses and organizations will continue to join in the efforts to help replace this important school and community facility.

Anyone who is interested in contributing to this project can contact Bayard Public Schools at 308-586-1325 for additional information.
