Students in the Career and Technical program were putting the finishing touches on the 8-by-16-foot trailer Friday. The trailer is used by the Salem Exchange Club to sell Christmas trees as a fundraiser for the needy, said David Howes, a Pinkerton building technology teacher.
"It was like a send-off," he said. "I felt this would be good for the CTE program."
The Salem Exchange Club had planned to use the trailer this holiday season as part of its fundraising program. But the trailer was in disrepair and needed major work completed before it could go back on the road, Howes said.
"We have to get this thing hitched and ready to go," Howes said. "It's a great fundraiser for them."
Howes supervised Building Construction Technology, which was responsible for the frame, roof, siding and windows, door and insulation, sheetrock, cabinets and trim. Also participating were students from Electrical Technology, who provided costs estimates and a complete rewire, under the supervision of teacher Brian Pare.
