New tower clock at RHS!
For years, dropping off my daughter and then my son on Brookside, I would turn to pass RHS and look up at the clock in the tower...the clock whose time never changed...and now, I'm excited to see that the clock has been repaired! (Or, more accurately, replaced.) The original clock was made of wood and, as you can imagine, was rotting and not really salvageable after all those years in the elements. The new clock looks great!
There is so much site work being done at the high school. Stairs, railing, sidewalks, the arched entrance at Heermance which was a gift from the Class of 1923...all being repaired, made more safe and more secure. Glad the rain has stopped and it looks clear for the next week-plus (knock wood). This will help them get everything done in time for school to start.
