What did a parent teacher group in Basalt do when a tremendous tractor trailer load of much-needed mulch was dumped on the elementary school playground a week before the first day of class?

We rallied our excellent volunteers, who are pictured on our Facebook page, PIE-Basalt Elementary School, pushing wheelbarrows, shovels and rakes. And though they fought hard and took only a little pizza break, there remained a daunting pile of wood chips.

In came the town of Basalt to the rescue, sending one of its finest, Bentley Henderson, director of public works, on a skid steer to put that mulch in its place. Bravo and thanks to all of these wonderful players in our Basalt Elementary playground success story.
