Bucyrus City Hall ready for holidays thanks to Bucyrus students

Students from the Bucyrus City School District brought holiday cheer to the Bucyrus City Hall in the form of Christmas decorations Dec. 6.

The program, now in its seventh year, gives Bucyrus students the opportunity to be involved in public service and to build community pride. Students at Bucyrus Elementary School spent several days making the ornaments that are displayed throughout City Hall.

“The students really enjoy making the different Christmas ornaments for the City Hall tree and interior,” Elementary School Principal Timothy Souder said. “It is great that the students get to see the work they’ve completed on display for the Bucyrus community to enjoy.”

Once the ornaments were delivered and the tree was up, it was time for the Bucyrus High School Student Council to go to work. Fifteen Student Council members volunteered to go to City Hall and hang the decorations made by their fellow Redmen. High School volunteers included: Tyler Bishop, Micah Graves, Lauren Kohler, Alivia Lewis, Sarah Lipscomb, Andrew Mee, Jackson Moody, McKenze Powers, Caleigh Rister, Kael Scott, Karley Spears, Maddyson Stewart, Jade Torres, Kristen Vaughn and Jordann Whitmore.

“This is always one of our Student Council’s favorite projects,” Secondary School Principal Dr. Mark Burke said. “It’s a great experience for our students to engage with city leadership and give back to the community.”

Bucyrus Mayor Jeff Reser, whose favorite season is Christmas, was excited when he saw the fruits of the students’ labor throughout City Hall.

“This is an opportunity for the students to engage in the life of the city,” Reser said. “Our city will be better the more we give students the opportunity to plug in to the life of the city.”

The City Hall Christmas tree and ornaments will be on display throughout the entire Christmas season for all Bucyrus community members to enjoy.
