Aqua delivers drinking water 24/7, but our Virginia team recently delivered a lot of fun for students at the Carysbrook Elementary School in Fork Union, Fluvanna County. Many of the Carysbrook students’ families are served by Aqua in the nearby Lake Monticello community.
Last year, Shannon Becker, president of Aqua Virginia, and Tim Castillo, operations manager, started plans to identify, buy, refurbish and donate playground equipment for the school. Aqua employees installed the equipment in October, and Becker and Castillo joined third and fourth graders during recess on Nov. 15th to cut the ribbon.
Carysbrook Principal Don Stribling, Fluvanna County School Superintendent Gena Keller, and Director of Elementary Instruction Brenda Gilliam hosted Aqua at the school.
Principal Stribling led the kids as they recited the CAR’s Stars Pledge:
After the ribbon cutting, the kids were free to play. “Aqua is proud to contribute to some of the youngest members of the community,” said Becker. “We hope children enjoy the playground set for years to come.”
