In preparation for the dedication of a Tesla Statue by the Government of Serbia, several contractors, with the help of many volunteers, cleared an overgrown area between the tower base and the street; raised the ground; built a foundation and fenced-in area; laid electrical services; erected light poles; laid decorative stones; and reseeded and mulched the tower base.
Once again a very good day at the Tesla site despite the occasional light rain. About 20 volunteers, some of them from out-of-state, worked together and completed a number of tasks, chipping all branch piles; raking and cleaning up on the south and east sides of the lab building; collecting metal around the site; cleaning out the guard house; and installing a flood light.
The first volunteer grounds cleanup crew arrived on a rainy Saturday morning. They picked up trash along the site perimeter; cut vines from the sidewalks and from the fence; raked leaves on the road to the gate; trimmed bushes along the parking lot; and collected a large amount of trash and debris inside the Tesla property.
