MSI delivered the last 5 black granite stones (4 monoliths and 1 center name topper stone). With the help of Hatton Crane and their crew, Larry Lepore, Brian Morrison and his crew, Chad and the MSI’s crew, donor Ross Bigler, and Michael L. Emerson we glued in the mounting stainless steel dowel rods, off loaded the granite and installed it all. We also installed the new 25 foot black flag pole with an eagle topper.
