In 2008, we were awarded, by Gov. Riley, a grant for the
Beautification Project. We were so excited! ALDOT
explained in our first meeting of June of 2008 that it is a
LONG process. I thought "how long could it be?"
I believe it now!
There will be approx. 33 trees, numerous flowers & wild
flowers along with shrubbery, 5 gas lanterns, courtyard and
area for the old pump and kettle. The site will be irrigated and
the parking area will be packed with limestone fines.
A special thanks goes out to ALL those who sponsored
BRICKS and made donations. The project will cost approx.
$75,000.00. We have raised approx. $45,000.00. So, we
will continue to sponsor events to cover the balance. We also
thank, South Alabama Gas, Southern Pine and countless
others who have given donations and sweat equity!
And, none of this would have possible without the cooperation
of the ALABAMA RAILROAD!
A special THANKS to them!
