Toledo High School Sweat Equity Phase II: Our thanks to all those who participated in the "Sweat Equity" fence building project on Saturday. Eight of Toledo's finest came out to dig holes, pour concrete, spread gravel, and plumb posts. Special thanks to Morgan Tjemsland for bringing his tractor and auger, and to Brad Dykstra for getting the extra rock. We're ready for phase 2 of the project this Saturday: stringing the chain link fabric and finishing the fence. We'll need lots of hands for this. Hope you can join in.

Two replacement trees will be installed at planters Fall or Spring, current tall plants adding color and contrast. Toledo Hardware/NAPA planters jointly upgraded this week by CGT & Tonya Lovell, proprietor.
