Thanks to Kalia for sending the info and photos. She writes:

“I drive by the bus stop right across the entrance for the old soldiers home every morning and the last week there have been a couple of guys out there working on those “pegs” out there. Usually I would see people sitting on make shift seats where they took an egg crate and put it upside down on the pegs. They would be out there when no one was there and I always wondered who was the good Samaritan who donated the egg crates for the bus riders there. Some days they would be there, some days not. But just this past week someone was building first a wooden frame around a few pegs, then later were filling it in with cement. yesterday I walked by there by chance and noticed that the benches are finished and that they have crosses cut out of them. Was it a church that donated these benches? Is that public property or does it belong to someone? Do you think they had to get permits? They are wonderful benches and I saw some old soldiers sitting on them today, they looked like they enjoyed them.”

So does anyone know which Church sponsored these benches?
