Mardi Gras Celebration at the Youth Center New Bus Stops Provide a Safe Dry Place for Children Over in the Vosper neighborhood, there are two new bus stops on Sickman Loop. These stops were requested by the families living in the neighborhood, who wanted a safe and dry place for the children in the area to wait for the school bus each day. The location and the design of the two bus stops were also chosen with help from neighborhood residents as well as the Oakville School District. Both stops have covered bus shelters to keep the kids dry during our long rainy winters. The new bus shelters will also keep the children safer, as they will want to wait in the shelter and not run out into the road. A big thank you goes to Kayloe Dawson from the Planning Department and the Tribe’s own Confederated Construction Company for listening to the needs of the community and putting these great new bus stops in.
