Heritage Museum


Museum Grounds

If you live close enough to the Museum you should stop by and visit the gardens. Gene and Iris Martin once again have been putting their gardening talents to work. They have lovely flowers, old and new, and wonderful accent pieces.

Our summer mowing crew also appreciates the work done on the north side of the Museum house. The impossible to mow grassy spot is now full of flowers, bordered by old concrete blocks made years ago right here in town.

Thank you to the Martins for the hours they spend making our grounds look so wonderful!

Mr. and Mrs. David Sawyer in honor of their 50th wedding anniversary this year made a donation to the garden fund. Thank you so much!

The Catlin Lions Club also spent one warm Thursday evening working on the Memorial flower beds. New mulch and a good weeding job makes everything look nice. Thank you Lions!

Scott Church also deserves a thank you for spraying the entire Museum grounds. No weeds for us!
