Cowell, We Have a Memorial!

Another major milestone has been reached in the project...the memorial is now complete! On Monday, the pedestal was lined with brick and our beautiful plaque, just flown in from Ohio, was installed. The fence is down so all can come and take their first close look.

And attention, skateboarders, the edges of the stack are lined with "skateboard stoppers" so we can keep the memorial in good shape.

The landscaping is coming along very nicely with the addition of boulders at the entrance to the site from Lawson Ct. This week, we will be planting several new plants in the area (drought tolerant to save water as well!). All of this will be leading up to our celebration this coming Saturday, August 29th beginning at 11 a.m.
I am extremely proud of all who have supported the project including our homeowners with their patience and financial support, our Board of Directors, our wonderful and tireless Smokestack Committee volunteers and our contractor EBI and our awesome construction manager, Ron Gaither of Swinerton. Without all of these folks, none of this would have happened and it wouldn't look as good as it does! Thanks to ALL of you!

See our Urgent News section to the left for details on our celebration event. See you Saturday!

Mark Weinmann, Cowell Smokestack Project Manager, CHOA
