The girls, including Leah Thompson, Lalia Watkins, Emily Jackson, Maggie Gillespie, Amanda Jackson, Dillan Hurd and Olivia Jackson worked under the supervision of Janice Bryant, Tanya Jackson and Laura Gillespie.

The tent city, which aims to help transition the homeless to more permanent housing, has not yet been approved by county officials. A public hearing is scheduled for a conditional use permit at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 7 at the county office building on South Hancock Street in downtown Rockingham.
