Hello Everyone!!

The new lights on the “Walk of Honor” are up. Bryan from Flagpole Express, that donated the poles for the new lights we purchased, came out and set them last week and they look and work great! It’s amazing how much more light is afforded to those who walk the “Walk of Honor” looking for their Veterans bricks. We can’t thank Bryan enough for all he’s done for us and the park, he’s a super guy! If your looking for beautiful, top of the line flag poles for your yard or business, there’s no one better than Flagpole Express! God Bless to All!!

Hello Everyone!!

Have a great update on the pole for the “Walk of Honor” light!!!  Got a call from Bryan with Flag Pole Express and he requested we come his place by this morning and get not 1, not 2, but 3 poles he was donating to the park for the “Walk of Honor” lights.   All the poles in the park, both flag poles and light poles, will match.   WOW, what an awesome guy!!   If you want a flag pole in you’re yard, (we have 5 at our home) or your place of business, this is the gentleman you need to call!  Great guy that does a great job at a reasonable price.   When we determine where they will be placed he’s going to set them at no charge, but we’re going to provide the concrete.  I’ll keep you posted.  God Bless to All!!

Hello Everyone!!

Update on the pole for the “Walk of Honor” light!  Called Lowe’s yesterday and learned that someone was supposed to call us and let us know the pole we ordered was not available and a credit would be issued.  So it wasn’t the manager who dropped the ball, it was someone else, but I will inform him that someone did.  Glad I called or I still wouldn’t know anything!  Contacted Flag Pole Express, where we purchased the flag poles for the park, and he quoted us a great price and he will install it.   With board approval, the pole will the ordered and light will be up.  I’ll keep you posted.  God Bless to All!!

Hello Everyone!!

Here’s an update concerning the possibility of using some kind of high gloss or semi-gloss sealant on the bricks.  I talked with the brick engraving company and she contacted they’re brick manufacturer and they strongly suggest not to put anything on them.

On another note:

When we placed order #3 on the “Walk of Honor” we noticed there were places that needed more light on the bricks, so we purchased a solar one.   It required a tall pole so we placed a special order for one from Lowe’s on the 6th with a scheduled arrival on the 10th.   We went to pick it up and it had not arrived nor could they find where it had been ordered!   Oh well, things happen, so we placed the order again with a “we’ll call you when it arrives, it shouldn’t be long.”  As of this post, and after having just checked the tracking number, it’s still not here.  To say I’m disappointed is an understatement!   Lowe’s has been suburb when it came to anything dealing with the park until this, maybe it’s due to a new manager!  I’ll keep you posted.  God Bless to All!!

Hello Everyone!!

Went to the park early this morning and checked out the bricks.  The rain the other day helped but there was still some mortar dust residue.  It took about 45 min. with the cleaning solution to go over them and they look a lot better.  We’ll be checking with our contact at the brick engraver company tomorrow to see if there is any kind of high gloss or semi-gloss sealant we can use on them.  I’ll keep you posted.  God Bless to All!!

Hello Everyone!!

Brick order #3 was laid yesterday evening, July 25, by Troy the Brick Mason with help from his family.  He’s reasonable and he did a great job!  He also replaced 3 bricks for us.  If you have any kind of brick work you need done or a project you want done, he’s the guy!  Check out his work at troythebrickmason.com and call 901-281-3835.  We went out today to clean them up a little.  Due to the replacements, which had to be cut out, there was, and still is, some mortar dust residue on the bricks.  We used what clean water we had but we will go back again unless we get lucky and get some rain!!  I’ll keep you posted.  God Bless to All!!

Hello Everyone!

Hope all had a great 4th of July, remembered and honored our Veterans and celebrated the 242nd birthday of our wonderful county.  Brick order #3 is scheduled for engraving and delivery the week of the 16th.  I’ll keep you posted.

On another note, the architectural concepts of a pavilion & museum are beautiful, and we received approval last month.  We will concentrate on the pavilion this year and possibly the museum next year.  I’ll keep you posted on this as well.  In the meantime, check out the 4 newly stained picnic tables that are in the park, they look beautiful!  God Bless to All!!
