Special Session on June 9, 2015

Scott and John returned on June 9th to secure the Elizabeth Boyd marker and to assemble the obelisk monument of George Eugene Sellers. This was also an opportunity to try out the tripod/hoist system that Scott recently acquired as a tool to help in moving heavy monuments such as the Sellers monument. You can see from the pictures below that it was a success!

More sessions will be planned for the future to continue this massive effort. If you would like to participate, give the Society a call and check our website calendar.
