The Linn Park Progress

      The property given to the City of Martinsville by the Linn Charitable Foundation has a new look.  The buildings have been removed, the foundations filled with sand & clay, and the surface has been prepared to be planted in grass seed.  We are excited to see the improvement.
      The Festivals & Events Committee of Martinsville on the Move has been conducting an engraved brick fundraiser to build an amphitheater on the site.  So far we have raised over $62,000 and hope to begin construction as soon as possible after the architect presents us with his plan.
      I'm posting a few pictures so you can see the changes.
