Advanced Mechanical Principle students that assisted with the tables were Cody Groff, Kaleb Petitjean, James Schmiteyer, Payton Platfoot, Jason Simons, Alex Dirksen, Jeremiah Wagner, Dylan Dunn, Levi Barga and Isaiah Hess. A special thank you to Cody Groff and Kaleb Petitjean for taking the lead role for the building the tables.

In addition to the picnic tables the advanced mechanical principle classes also delivered some hydroponic salad kits to the tenants at the Versailles Senior Citizens Center. The lettuce was grown by the Versailles Ag Ed Greenhouse Management classes. The salad kits included two heads of hydronics lettuce grown in the school greenhouse, a bag of tomato and cheese and a bottle of salad dressing. The hydronics gowning unit located inside the school greenhouse was funded by grants from the Darke County Foundation and ACROP grant through the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
