Paul, Coley, Natalie and Adrienne have the tower down. The parts and pieces are cleaned, galvanized and labeled. The tower will soon rise about the swamp in Perry Lakes Park. What a wonderful project!

The galvanized iron of the tower weighs over 19,000 pounds. The crew will lift this weight several times before the tower is finished. Then comes the wooden steps and platforms. Smashed fingers and knuckles are part of this job. You got to love it!
