Congratulations and many thanks to all the great Veterans from Pleasanton who diligently worked hard for just short of one year on this project--it took many great men putting their heads together to work through all of the process to get this off the ground and to get the final blessing from the City Council of Pleasanton on Tuesday. It was a great feeling of satisfaction to all who helped along the way. Now on to raise funds and then to get the entire project going. WELL DONE from the Patriot.
