Updated schedule for bricklaying project

The City of Hillsboro will be laying bricks from 7-9:30 p.m. on August 6. This should be all that is needed to finish up for now. Then bricklaying will have to wait for the construction to move on further before we can lay the next ½ block.

All you need to bring is a willingness to help and maybe some gloves.
