On July 23rd the plaque for the Form of 1996 was installed in the Lower Dining Room of Coit (Upper). This plaque is the first of seven plaques to be completed in the Lower Dining Hall – plaques still need to be created for the Forms of 1991-1995 and 1997 to fill the empty spaces there. Since there are other plaques already hanging in this room, completed by previous carver David Nugent, I have not done a full color painted finish on the 1996 plaque, but have used a natural colored stain finish to match the surrounding woodwork.
Scott is finishing up with hanging the plaque:
And the plaque is in its place above the center name panel for the Form of 1996:
It is a very good feeling to see this plaque integrated with the other plaques in the Lower Dining Hall. I am looking forward to seeing more of those empty spaces filled as the project progresses.
