Construction continues with footings being poured and rebar placed in anticipation of the raising the walls, which will happen next month. Pat Lawrence of Lawrence Construction is overseeing this part of the project. He and his team first had to remove a boulder that was blocking what will one day be the doorway. They called in B & M Grading with their jackhammer and bobcat made quick work of the job. The large rock was split into two pieces and is really quite pretty (sparkly on the inside), and I’m sure Jim will use it in some artistic way. The structure you see in the background holds a shade over the sundial which is being constructed simultaneously with the Center. Made of rock, tile, and forged metal, it will honor those donors whose generous gifts have made this construction possible.
