Topping Off Ceremony
November 9, 2002
four months of work, another major milestone was reached when more than
100 residents and friends came to the construction site to "top
off" the new addition of the library. The event symbolized the
safe completion of the erection of several tons of steel that will become
the new addition of the building project. To celebrate, the last beam
was painted white and everyone in attendance signed the steel. An American
Flag was hung over the new Main Entrance, and a six foot pine tree will
be placed on the highest point of the new structure.
Trustee Building Committe Chairman, George Comeau & Trustee Chairman,
along with Trustees Vin Shea, Peg Mead and Susan Cogliano led off the
Beam Signing. Over a hundred residents followed their lead.
of children came to help consume
the refreshments donated by Trustee Susan Cogliano and her husband Ed.
Sporting requisite hardhats, the kids all signed the final beam.
the angle of your hardhat was just one
of the tasks learned at the Topping Off Ceremony.
