The Friends have contributed to improvements in our beautiful park this year by purchasing stone and having it hauled for the chimney at the cabin at Sadie Ford farm; replanting trees and flowers in the Butterfly Garden which suffered extensive damage from big equipment that was used to install the new bridge for the ADA Trail; provided concrete and pipe to make markers at the disc golf course; hosted the retirement event for Buddy Ingram; purchased broom making supplies; and purchased supplies to build the grist mill at Sadie Farm.
