New Paint

July 16, 2007

The exterior of Steele Lane Elementary is currently being repainted in preparation for the new school year and to fix up fading and peeling trim. It’s nice to see the School District sprucing up the place. Earlier this summer the paved playground area behind the school got a fresh coat of asphalt and has been re-lined for tetherball, basketball, hopscotch and all those other recess games.

Kudos also to Exchange Bank at the corner of Steele and Mendocino for the nice new paint job livening up the old drab beige.
