William Davis Jr. Memorial Pavilion in the Lyons View Community

William Davis Jr. Memorial Pavilion in the Lyons View Community

BBT had a wonderful opportunity back in June 2014. We were able to help build the William Davis Jr. Memorial Pavilion in the Lyon’s Bend View Community. The pavilion honors the great man that raised his family in the neighborhood, who faithfully worked as a gardener and butler for 60 years in order that his seven children could go on to accomplish more than he was able to in his life. The project was spearheaded by one of his sons, Ron Davis. For more information on the pavilion, just click here. You can see the assembly of our work below!
