— Thanks to donations from many individuals, businesses and supporters, many from out of town, and from Gravette alumni classes, the Old Town Steps will soon be completed.

Junior Hartley, who has spearheaded the project, thanks everyone who has stepped up to make it a success.

The accompanying photo shows some of the completed steps; more will be completed soon.

Since enough contributions have been received, a sidewalk will be added as will a step side rail to assist walkers. A donation marker is also planned when the project is completed.

Additional donations to further upgrade the Old Town Park will be used entirely for that purpose. They may be brought or sent to Gravette City Hall.
