Survey Work

One goal of the Committee for 2016 is to complete work on the area south of the Jane Barnes Field. That area is set aside for horseshoes (Previously constructed by the Early Lake Lions Club.), sand sports courts, a bicycle pump track and skate board area. To accomplish this, the area needs to be graded to its finished elevation and the mountain of excess dirt hauled away. The first step toward that occurred today. Steve Farr volunteered his time and expertise to do the survey work and set the grade stacks. He was assisted by Dennis Rollins, who says, “I know how to follow directions.” It is still another week before we can legally begin grading. Sometime after that date RB Peters will be onsite to complete that work.
