Today was a beautiful day for a Ground Breaking Ceremony. At 2pm, many people came to see the “official” ground breaking of the Mt. Eccles Renovation Project. There were several speakers, lots of sun, and a cake. What more could you ask for?
Cathy Sherman spoke for the City. Jim Nygaard, the Superintendent of the Cordova School District, spoke regarding the scope of the project. Principal Frank Wicks spoke about the history of the project.
Linnea Bradford spoke on behalf of the Parent Teacher Association. Valerie Covel spoke for the Cordova School Board, and Mayor Tim Joyce spoke about the project.
Then, Ms. Bradford, Ms. Covel, Mayor Joyce and Mr. Wicks got to work with their shovels.
And then, Cathy Sherman dished out the cake!
Hello Mt. Eccles Renovation Followers,
Welcome to our construction blog! Our goal is to involve all interested parties with current information regarding our construction projects. By engaging our elementary students with this effort we will be able to access current photos, brief comments from each, as well as input from the many bloggers such as you. It is a great opportunity for all involved to grow with the technology available as well as track one of the greatest projects in recent years in Cordova.
