The Paonia Lions Club and the Paonia High School seniors recently got together to complete a community service project requested by the former Paonia Teen Center coordinator, Ellen Smith, before she passed away.
Over three days, 12 volunteers put in over 70 man hours and donated over $250 in supplies, in order to sand, repaint, and replace as needed, the seats of the visitor side bleachers located at Paonia Town Park.
