A number of artifacts were found: sand, black soil, clay balls, and pebbles... all natural! No man-made artifacts were found, however, and volunteers were very disappointed, but also delighted that the working group was harmonious and shared a lot of laughs. Everyone had an important job and the work was completed in anticipation of the plentiful lunch provided by Kate & Randy Beaver. Football was viewed in the Yacht Club when hilarious stories were not being shared.
Esther Temple remarked, "Since the fence has gone up, some of the natural appearance of the tree canopy on the battery has had a chance to return. It is just beautiful back there. I had never noticed it until Randy sent me back there to clean the Memorial Trail markers today. We are so fortunate to have such a beautiful and historic place in our midst."
Donations received by Battery White Historical Association will be used for future projects, including more decorative fence sections.
