Greetings,

 

It is with great pride that we are able to post this communiqué.  After several years with little to no progress on the renovation of the Green Valley School located at 6900 FM 2153, Aubrey, Texas, a new page has been turned.  If you have not seen the restoration, please do so at your convenience.  A surprise awaits your eyes!

 

For the past four years the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 920, Denton, Texas, took on “Adopt a Highway” which happened to run in front of the old  Green Valley School house.

They have been cleaning and mowing the roadside every three or four months.  They were looking for a worthy project for their Chapter and decided that lending a hand in the renovation of Green Valley School was that project.  The foundation was repaired several years ago, but then the work came to a halt.  Well, now the old building has been restored.  See our photos and video of the project.

The inside has a replica of an old school room, a modern day kitchen, rest rooms and a large auditiorum for meetings and social events. As of this writing, the Veterans have spent over 15,000 hours of labor (equal to $300,000 in labor savings) and $110,000 in cash.

  

Tell all who might be interested in the happenings at Green Valley School to watch for updates on our website:  www.greenvalleyshs.org.  Anyone who has old photographs of the school and/or class photos, etc. is encouraged to submit them to either the webmaster or me.  We will make copies to put on the website and make certain that they are returned.  Also, if anyone has any historical story or anecdote about the school or knows someone who attended Green Valley School, those items, too, could be submitted through the website.

If you are interested in renting the facility for a function or event, please look under our services link for more information.

 

 

Sincerely,

 Board of Directors
