The red and white outdoor tables, provided by the Coca-Cola Corporation, have an interesting history. Before arriving at SHS, they were sat on by millions at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Each table and chair set cost SHS $100, but that’s considered a reduced price. Other canopies were to be added this week and trees will be planted.
