Creekstone Neighborhood Installs Bus Stop Shelter For Kids


Mayor Gary Fuller and Opelika City Schools Superintendent Mark Neighbors visited with some special people in the Creekstone neighborhood last week. Several parents were determined to develop some sort of shelter for the children in their neighborhood at the bus stop and they did just that.

Heather and Nicholas Wideman, Thomas Green and Bradley Henderson worked tirelessly for more than a month to build this amazing cover for the kids in the neighborhood. The Homeowners Association of Creekstone paid for the shelter.

“We couldn’t have done it without everyone pitching in to get the job done. Those of us who built the shelter don’t even have kids using the bus stop. We just realized the need and took action,” said Heather Wideman. “Bradley Henderson, of Henderson Lawn Company, provided the landscaping around the bus stop. And homeowner Jeff Lee allowed us to place the shelter on his property. He doesn’t even have children in school. He’s just a good neighbor with a big heart!”

Dr. Neighbors added, “This is a prime example of how one neighborhood came together to improve the lives of their children, our students. These kids can now wait at the bus stop without worrying about the weather. Many thanks to the parents and residents of the Creekstone community.”
