A History Rewritten-2008

by Paul Kammerdiner

2008
We have arrived and are, as always, looking for documents and photos, and as sometimes happens, there is a gap in the documentation.

PLANNING
As to be expected, nothing on record, but I did find a few notes.
This year we Hired Mollie (Luze) Aronowitz as full-time Director of Horticulture.

From Director’s Notes:
General cleanup included edging around all gardens and trees; removal of the remaining “livestock” fence; repainting the interior of the Education Center and the installation of an air conditioner. In addition, we purchased lab tables, GPS devices, telescopes, digital cameras, computer and projector for the educational programs. Hired two full-time summer gardeners

EVENTS
No joy!

PROJECTS
• Fence Completion
Construction was completed of the cedar fence East of the Rose Garden toward the South. It was, then dedicated to the Community Foundation, the funding source for this project
