NEWBOLD - The Newbold Outdoor Recreation Center will soon have a new building.

Blackwell Job Corps provided the labor for the town to build the facility.

Builders put in a concrete slab for the foundation one month ago to start the project.

An instructor at Blackwell says that building will help store items. 

"This storage shed is going to be for them to store their equipment for their disc golf facility," said Jim Flannery, A construction craft labor instructor at Blackwell. "They have lawnmowers and UTV's and things like that to go into this facility." 


One graduating senior believes this project will set him up for a successful future.

"It means a lot because I am about graduate and it gives me more hands-on project work to do."

"Also when I go out into the field I am not blind," said Ignatius Vang, a senior at Blackwell.

The shed will take anywhere from two to three weeks to complete.

After that, the Blackwell students have six more projects lined up.
