What did we do in 2016?
Painted the new patterns and posts.
Began assembling it on-site!
No Eagle Scout Projects!
pipe fence painting project - 1 Boy scout had interest
but we ran into lead paint.
MARKERS, FENCES, etc:
FONTANA: straightened 5 markers, placed our new Letta Durham marker, placed the new Philpott marker.
Unfortunately, they did not straighten our GAR stones - they
said it was too much work and would cost $10,100. to do 12
Put back into cemetery 2 wooden markers.
LATHROP FENCE: repainted all newly made pieces, erected
3 sections of fence. It is beautiful
Removed volunteer palm from Mezes Plot (thanks P&R)
searched for buried tile pieces
finished cutting all the dead trees (thanks P&R)
HRAC PROJECT PROCESS: tried to streamline to process and flow-chart, but failed.
The only thing we can do without the lengthy HUCA->HRAC-RWCPlanningCommission is re-paint.
