New Benches on the Green
By Lucy Fried
Good news! Village Green has two new benches: one is in Court 14 near the Sycamore allée west of the Main Green, and the other is between courts 3 and 4. Both face the Main Green.
The benches were donated by Georgia Lumpkin in remembrance of her husband, Ted Lumpkin, one of the Tuskegee Airmen, the famed fighter group who broke the U.S. Air Force’s color barrier during World War ll. He died from COVID on December 26, 2020, just four days short of turning 101.
