New Gazebo Completed

    On Saturday, July 18, the new Peteetneet Gazebo was erected on the site of the old Gazebo.  The original Gazabo was located near the corner of Utah Avenue and Main Street for many years.  When Utah Avenue was widened east of Main Street,  the Gazebo was moved to the Peteetneet grounds.  It was rebuilt as an Eagle Scout project a number of years ago.  Due to weathering and the rotting of the wooden structure.  It was determined that it could not be rebuilt.
 A short time before Lee Dell Brown, a former resident, passed away, he made a monetary donation to the Peteetneet to be used by the People Preserving Peteetneet in projects they felt needed to be accomplished for the improvement of the facility.  The Board of Trustees voted to purchase new folding chairs for the building and to replace the old Gazebo.
Under the direction of Dale Barnett, PPP President, and individuals assisting a scout completing his Eagle Project took the morning to erect the new Gazebo. This new structure is an added asset to the Peteetneet.
