Updating OMG’s monuments

Please take a stroll around the neighborhood.  Your dues and the Board have been at work updating and reconstructing a pair of end cap monuments.  The stone pedestals and statues at 66th and Cherry have been updated; the pedestals have been repaired and topped with limestone caps, and the Jack and Jill statues have been cleaned.  

The end result makes for a lasting and improved impression of our Oak Meyer Gardens Neighborhood. The island at 69th Street and Cherry is getting a face-lift as well. We will have photos of this soon.   

We are working on many exciting projects over the next few months and will provide periodic updates here on the Website and in the Acorn newsletter.  Let us know what you think!
