Kenwood Elementary School Gym Bricks

Cleaned bricks from the Kenwood Gym will be given to individuals on a first come first serve basis by the Bend LaPine School District. On January 12, 2017, the roof collapsed at the Kenwood Highland Magnet School because of heavy snow fall that had accumulated from winter snow storms. The bricks were transported to the construction yard and cleaned by Kirby Nagelhout Employees as a public service at no charge to the School District or Tax payers. “We take great pride in giving back to the community that has been so good to our company. It was apparent that the bricks meant a great deal to some of the citizens that attended school at Kenwood and we are proud to provide the service.” said Kirby Nagelhout Construction Company President Jeff Deswert. More than 1000 bricks will be transported to High Desert Middle School and one brick will be given to each person that requests a brick. The event is scheduled this Saturday, April 8, from 11a.m. to 1 p.m.IMG_6817
