What a beautiful morning for our bench dedication with the Cadenhead's!  Our dedication ceremony was both intimate and well-attended.
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us! Especially the Cadenhead family for your generosity and strong show of support. 

Wright's Field now has a new gathering place. A place to sit and relax, watch the sunset, and maybe meet your neighbors...
