The 2005 Senior Project was called SWAT, which stood for Seniors Working Around Town. Class members offered their services for a variety of work projects. Using an auction format, Kermit Richert sold the services of various senior class teams to a total of 27 bidders. The main work project was sponsored by the Rotary, and involved planting over 60 trees on Route 3 south of town.
The seniors who helped will probably never forget the day, as it was raining and extremely cold. But they will be able to see their results for many years to come, in the form of the beautiful trees lining the highway and making the town more attractive.
The Class of 2005 also sponsored a home run hitting derby. For a donation of $1.00 or a food item, participants had three chances to hit a home run. This part of the project raised $99 and five large boxes of food for the Helping Hand food pantry. The total raised by the Class of 2005 was $4,470.
