Science Center Fix-Up

Kudos to Shawn Burns of Abelard Construction, who stepped up after hearing me describe the vandalism at the St. Louis Science Center last week. I asked listeners to contribute enough cash to cover the $4,000 in repairs that needed to be done. A lot of folks responded with checks and other donations, but Shawn went even further. He sent one of his crews to the Science Center on Monday with to power-wash the graffiti off the walls and sand-blast the paint off the sidewalk, making the exterior as good as new. Abelard Construction is also picking up the cost of replacing the banner that was defaced over the center's entrance. Way to go, Shawn! Nice to know you and so many others were so willing to show your support for one of the great institutions in our town.
