The detailed task of improving the verandas at the Mead Cultural Education Center (MCEC) began this week with tuckpointing. For those unfamiliar with the term, it means our workers went in and carefully removed lose mortar between stones, then went back in and applied new mortar. It will be a long and tedious task, but is just the first step into adding life to the verandas. The Doyle Stevens Construction crew is also working on the sidewalks on the east side of the MCEC.
