Three Mehlville schools get new bleachers

Three Mehlville School District schools — Oakville Middle, Margaret Buerkle Middle and Washington Middle schools received new bleachers during the summer. Besides looking better than the old ones, the bleachers are also safer. The old wooden bleachers did not have an aisle. People had to walk on the wooden planks to get to the upper seating. The new bleachers have an aluminum aisle and hand rails to make getting up and down easier. Pictured above are the new bleachers at Oakville Middle.
