Ron, said, speaking of the bench's Greg wants to have the benches on cement slabs to keep him from having to turn them over all the time to trim. This is currently causing stress on the benches because of the cement side slabs. Discussion was again made on this and was decided to hold off for now. Pam brought up about a person wanting to purchase a bench. She wanted to know if we are still doing them. Pam said there is a person in West Bolivar that possibly would be interested in doing them.. She will check out. Then decision will need to be made how much to charge. Melissa said she would also ask the school if they would be able to engrave them.
