Fence Project

Proposed New Fence

We are currently undertaking a capital fund-raising project to raise funds so that we can complete the new fence that will border Rouse Road. The brick columns have been installed. Our remaining fundraising goal of $25,000 will go towards  installing a new commercial grade ornamental fence that will be installed between the brick columns. The front entrance has been relocated to align with the marble sign and flagpole. The new front entrance has been set back to allow for cars to pull off from the road.
