Sam Chatmon's new headstone and commemorative bench

Sam Chatmon's new beveled headstone and commemorative bench floated down the Mississippi River on flatboats yesterday to Greenville, Mississippi. Thanks to all who contributed to this project. We hope to have them both installed within the next couple of weeks!!!
