It all started with a survey...

Richard L. Worthey and his team at LJA Engineering made a surprise visit to the YAO housing complex to complete the survey of the park boundaries. 

LJA Engineering says yes to supporting women veterans and first responders

It did not take Richard Worthey long to get back to YAO about agreeing to be part of the Women Veteran and Women First Responder Park project. Long-time Beaumont resident Richard Worthey is an expert in his field. This is a great company making history for women veterans and women first responders.

You can't break ground without dirt!

Knife River sent in their people to ensure a nice mound of dirt for the groundbreaking ceremony.

The dirt needed to be smoothed out to get a nice pile. We are thankful that the H.O.W. Center provided YAO with extra volunteer manpower. Victoria and Angelina helped too!

In comes Michael Perez

A new volunteer for YAO, Michael Perez not only built the Gateway Mortgage Group fence, he opened his little black book and introduced us to many of his friends. A man of his word doing impact work in the community. 

Michael Perez, Chris Yaw and Preston Cooley built the Gateway Mortgage Group fence. It made a nice backdrop during the groundbreaking ceremony. Michael worked hard to make sure the fence was ready in time. He also organized a memorable activity during the groundbreaking ceremony by encouraging guests to help screw in pickets.
