     The first task of the day was to put the proper rope on the flag pole. With the new rope installed we flew the flag for the better part of the day. The flag pole crew included Ed Amrhein, Joe, Jim Robertson and John La Costa.

Concrete Ties     The major task for the day was to install used concrete ties on the bank side of four track. The ties are to heavy to move by hand so the back hoe was used to transport and place the ties. The crew included Ed Amrhein, Chris Howell, Chris McNally, Joe, Rick Obbink and John La Costa.
