Thank You to Jim Dunn, John Kennedy, Dave Kessler, Nancy Stevens, Tim Vincent, Brad Yachimowski, and John Synoski. Work needed to be done was completed in no time. Walt Basiago indicated that the pressure treated wood reported purchased in the Treasurer's Report will be used to repair the sign and one table. He will make the repairs as he can.
