Roger Grummett, Tom Blanton and Joe Heueisen have been busy volunteering their services at the site of the Empty Chair Memorial. They are saving the grass which occupies the spot where the memorial will be placed so it can be used for landscaping purposes after the memorial is installed. The Juneau City Parks and Recreation Department has been watering the sod and keeping it green for the occasion.
The Empty Chair Committee has also posted a sign crediting the National Parks Service for its contribution to the creation of the memorial.
And so it begins!
