The dirt is flying at the entrance of the Blue Ribbon Foundation! A new retaining wall and fence are being installed. The current wall, constructed of railroad ties was installed back in the 1980s.They were showing the passage of time, as all wood tends to do. With a wonderful donation from Lawn Ranger Lawn & Landscaping, the old railroad ties will be replaced with a sturdier landscaping block to support our foundation for many years to come!

Work started on Tuesday with the removal of the wooden fence and railroad ties. Next, they prepared the base, ensuring that the Blue Ribbon Foundation has a strong and sturdy foundation for the block wall. By the end of the week, the transformation was complete, awaiting only a new fence to finalize our office design. The new wall looks fantastic! When you enjoy the Fair this August, make sure to check it out!
