Chapter 154's Continuing Efforts to Service and Restore Daytona Beach's famous Coquina Clock Tower

March 21, 2008 marked the completion of the 2007/2008 clockworks replacement project when city workers from Daytona Beach started up the new motors and Jim  Ziesler and Tom Bransford, Chapter 154 members, put the new hour and minute hands on the four dials of the Coquina Clock Tower. The tower is now telling time once again.
