By now, many of you have noticed the steel beams sticking out of the windows of the DeTurk Round Barn, this is in preparation of the barn being lifted. It will be an exciting step of the project and may happen on Friday. The sod will finally be placed in the dog park and work will continue on the barn while the dog park completes its “grow in”. Tentative Dog Park opening is July 15, 2010- but everything is subject to change due to varied circumstances.
