The public gets to see some of the work his classes produce at the For- sythia Festival when they sell items like Adirondack chairs and carpenter bee traps. His dasses built the Fire Safety House commis- sioned for the Forsyth Fire Department by a Leader- ship Monroe Class. They built a ramp for physical state for permission. Hall told council the board of directors of the Forsyth Golf Course asked the dty to write off its electric bill like it does the electric bills for city build- ings. She said when the dry bought the rest of the golf course the board asked the city to provide utilities but funds to do so were not included in the dty's 2018 budget.

He suggested that all members of the DDA come to the Georgia Municipal Association Mayors Day Conference in Atlanta in January for those members to get training and to spend time with council. "No offense to any person but do they want to be reap- pointed?" asked council member Mike Dodd. "You don't have very good atten- dance:' "Then don't appoint them" said Hall. "That's why I brought it to you tonight." Council agreed to hold its annual retreat during the GMA Mayors Day Conference at the Atlanta Hilton on Sunday, Jan. 27 from 8 a.m. until lunch time. I dasses did in the Mary Persons nurse's office. They built new countertops and new cabinets above and below the counter. It took about halfofa semester to complete the remodeling in the nurse's office. Jones noted that the students are learning important skills in remod- eling because it can be very specialized work. It takes skills to remove the old as well as to install the new. It can be challenging to keep within the time constraints required for remodeling, and increasing technology' in schools, offices and even homes make remodeling aroun4 the technology another challenge. Dunham said he hopes - to see the Mary Persons team at the Skills Challenge in the spring and hopes it will go on to the national Skills Challenge. He said the national competition is"r coming to Atlanta in 2020? But more importantly he -, urged the students to take advantage of the oppor- tunities the construction field offers them, indudin those who go to college and pursue careers as construc- tion superintendents.
