The Camera pole is up and 5 cameras are running! We set all four flags and hoisted them up to make sure everything worked as it should before taking them down. After some adjustments the flags seem to work okay with the flag pole guards. New heavy duty locks are installed on the pole guards and they are ready to fly as soon as the cameras are all adjusted and tuned. I believe we should be flying again by the weekend after consulting with the other Board members.

We had a great workday on Saturday. With the awesome help of my son Cedric, the fences are now installed protecting the monuments and the culvert guards are locked around the poles. There was a lot of fuss getting the concrete drilled and expansion bolts to line up but now it will be a lot harder to do damage to the road markers and poles.

The roof was also patched to stop leaking by Cedric until it is dry enough to install a new roof.

Eric was there to help and it was great to have a big strong young man to dig the hole for the camera pole. He made short work of it. We are ready now to pour concrete for the bolts. It is a large hole down about 4 half feet by 20 inch wide. The pole arrived last week and it was my plan to have the anchor bolts in but could just not make it happen.

Hopefully this week we can install the anchor bolts in concrete and set the pole up. Then Flags will be flying again!!

I mowed the Park while Eric cut all afternoon with his weed trimmer. It looks great.

Special thanks to Billy for all the welding of the fences and culverts. Cedric for spending the day drilling bolting and working on the roof. And Eric for your continued devotion to working on the Park.

Thank you all for your support. We are running up a debt, but with your help we should be able to pay this off soon. Please share the Go Fund Me link and give what you can.
