Thanks to all for your involvement and passion for these associations and the Park.

5 tons of boulders have been ordered to reinforce the seawall at the park. Delivery is scheduled for this Friday, June 9th, at 8:30am. Work will begin at the park once delivery has been completed. We will be using a hand truck to move the rocks to the seawall.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
