Students from the Grayson County High School donated their time and hardwork to build birdhouses and birdfeeders for the Grayson Manor in Leitchfield.

Larry Fleenor’s woodworking class built eighteen birdhouses. The employees of Grayson Manor then painted each of them to reflect each others different personalities.

Larry Baker’s metalworking class built six bird feeders and shepard hooks. Starting this August Baker plans to have ten more built by the end of the year.

Jordan Wilkerson, secretary and Kellie Gibson, president of Skills USA/VICA cut and fabricated the metal shepards hooks themselves.

Baker said he got the idea for the project through his daughter that works at Grayson Manor. He asked her what he could do for the residents. She responded in saying they love birds, and animals in general because it reminded them of home. It took two weeks to build the shepards hooks and birdfeeders.

Debbie Clack, activities director for Grayson Manor wanted to extend a show of gratitude for the students and let them know that the residents greatly appreciate their efforts.
