Donations Beautify Museum Grounds

Thanks to Gene Newcomb and The Bark Place for their generous donations to beautify the Museum gardens.
Mr. Newcomb donated $100 to purchase bark mulch, and Development Director, Ron Thiesen, solicited free installation from The Bark Place. The bark was blown in this afternoon!
The tree pictured here is one of four Japanese Maples donated by Dick Bryant. The trees have been planted in the "bump outs" that were constructed during the hardscape project. Dick Bryant, local architect, propagates his own trees. Thanks to all for your generous gifts to the Museum!
