Last fall Allen Snyder's first/second hour Construction class worked on the bridge assembly at Wock Family Lake. The project began on Wednesday, August 21 (first day of school) and was completed on Tuesday, October 15, 2013. The class spent approximately one and a half hours per day working on the project. At the April 1 council meeting, the City of Jerseyville awarded a
$500 donation to the class for their hard work on both the bridge and pavilion.
