The Fence is Down and We're in the Stretch!

As we enter the home stretch to the Cowell Smokestack project, the activity is reaching a fever pitch in anticipation of completion.

LAST Chance to Get Your Brick! - Tomorrow, Saturday, August 15th is the last chance to get your souvenir brick. We'll be at the Walnut Country (Crossings) Business Office on Lawson Ct. from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Anyone in the community can come down and choose their very own souvenir smokestack brick. We'll give them out until we run out so come on down!

The Memorial Grows... - The smokestack memorial is looking better every day. The outside has been "skim" coated to smooth the surface and the paint is being applied to make it look like ti once did. The inside will stay in it's natural state so those who visit can see what it looked like. The form for our pedestal is ready for its concrete this coming week. It will then be lined with brick and have our memorial plaque installed.

Landscaping! - The fence has been taken down so our crack gardening crew, Landscape Contractors (LCC), can begin the final irrigation work in preparing for planting of our new maple trees and sod next week. With the fence down, you can get a close up view of how nice the memorial has turned out. Come take a look!
