Commemorative Oak Leaf Wall Update
We are closing in on the construction project at the Arboretum which will include numerous areas including the south area completion, installation of the new James Madison sculpture “Siblings”, and the construction of the Commemorative Oak Leaf Wall. The design has been completed and approved through Parks and at our June meeting we are hearing a late summer/fall time line. We are all extremely happy with the look of the wall. It is frankly being “overbuilt” with a huge footing underneath that will ensure the wall will remain level and last for centuries to come. We will let you know when the leaves have been mounted and you can come see the finished product.
We thank you all again for helping this project out by donating to the Leaf Fundraiser and thank you now for your patience. We all have been working on this a long time. All of us on the board apologize for the delay but we remain resolute in our passion to see this project to its completion!
