Honor Roll Progress Continues

With his back to the camera Don Mays,
President of Local 10 tries to keep pace
with his dad laying brick on the new
Wellsville Honor Roll.
After being rained out last week-end members of the Brick Layers & Allied Crafts Ohio Local 10 and volunteers spent time this Saturday & Sunday getting the brick work started on the new Wellsville Honor Roll.  The brick is called Rustic Red and these guys are building the wall to last.  It's union made and there is no doubt about it.

Honor Roll Co-chairman George Crews noted members of the painter's local was there yesterday to apply a primer coat on the back of the memorial.  The back of the wall will eventually be painted some similar to rustic red to match the brick work on the front.

In the tan shirt the elder Mr. Mays works
on one end of the new wall that will be
dedicated to all Wellsville Veterans.
When completed it will be a tribute to all Wellsville area veterans of the US Armed Forces and the folks that dedicated hours of work to make the new honor roll possible.  Many of those people are veterans themselves.

Would love to see another mural on the backside of this wall.

That would be awesome...maybe the Revitalization Committee could get something going honoring our veterans.
