Caboose Project

Baird High School Juniors, Marcos Lopez and Hailey Self, have begun attending the Leadership Texas Midwest Community Network Classes.  They have chosen to renovate the Caboose west of the Depot Downtown which will be presented before judges in September for scholarship possibilities.  This will be one of the main areas of focus on Spring Clean-Up day along with City Park improvements and planting flowers Downtown on April 8th.
