WEATHERLY, CARBON COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) Some people in Carbon County spent Mother’s Day raising money for an area school building.
The “Raise the Roof Festival” benefits the Weatherly Schwab school.
The event featured everything from clothing sales and bounce houses to a chili cook off and plenty of games.
It’s all to raise money to renovate the old building, which the town just got back from the bank.
Organizers say it needs a new roof and a few renovations after sitting empty for 25 years but it’s an important piece of property to preserve.
“Its such a historical landmark, and has such value to it. this is picture that is printed on our police cars in town and this is the picture that’s on their badges. this is the picture that when people Google Weatherly, this is what comes up.” said Alyssa Hinkle, Secretary of the Board of Directors.
