The pavilion is up and ready for visitors. Violette Denney just couldn't wait to try out one of the benches. Watch for more information and pictures later, but we are so excited we just had to share a picture. Like most improvements when one thing is finished, you see other things that are needed. We will be concentrating on walkways and landscaping around this area.
