Site Ready for Completion of Phase One

June 30, 2000

The trailer that will serve as our temporary on-site office and Visitors Center has been relocated along the rear edge of the property. Electrical power and telephone lines will soon be installed enabling our staff to maintain an on-site presence. Preparations are underway to mount the F-14 on to the pedestal. Once secured, the final phase of completing Grumman Memorial Park will commence.

While no firm date has been set, plans for the unveiling ceremony are presently being formulated. But as close as we are to obtaining our goal, we are approximately $40,000.00 shy of meeting our cost estimate to complete this project. Any further purchases of bricks, park benches or any donations over the next several weeks will certainly be of tremendous help.

From all of us at Grumman Memorial Park, we thank you for all of your support, encouragement and patience.
