"Planning the Stone"
This afternoon, Carol Bennett, ABCS Board President, the stone mason, and Martin Heemer, ABCS Board Member, met to plan the location and setting of the stone monument Martin is donating to Matzke Park. It will commerate the work of the original Association for Better Community Schools (ABCS) group that 17 years ago began work to save what is now Matzke Park from being a strip mall when the school district put the 20 acres up for sale. ABCS has since been a major supporter of the building of the Butterfly Garden as well as the playground for special needs children. The monument will be erected in the next month and located in the grassy area just north of the park office.
