I want to thank everyone who helped make the Modesto Arch restoration a huge success. There were so many, behind the scenes people and contractors, contributors, city employees and committee members who worked many hours to seeing this project all the way through. I thank each and every one of you for being part of this amazing team and for making a difference.
This was a fun project not only because we worked on one of Modesto's well known historical landmarks, but because of the great teamwork in making this happen. This project had its obstacles, like in many projects, and each person stepped up and helped solve the issues. There are a few people I would like to thank individually. Thank you Greg Nyhoff for being a great public partner, Cecil Russell for being a great leader and mentor, and a huge thank you to Matt Paine with Collins Electrical and Wyatt Trammel with ACME Construction for their great problem solving skills and drive. I would also like to thank the community who were part of and/or came out to be part of our restoration celebration and for those who helped put together such an evening of fun memorable entertainment.
