Tree Dedications, Aug 26, 3:30PM

Please join us at 3:30PM on August 26th. The tree dedication ceremony before the community open house will honor many community members. Four trees have been donated by different sponsors and will be dedicated to honor individuals chosen by that sponsor. One will be dedicated to Roy and Sherry Bryant. Without their generosity and support, the library project would not have been possible. Two of the trees will be in memory of local youth and families that have tragically lost their lives to automobile accidents. Rebekah Jean Knox, Madison (Madie) Hall and her parents Lee J and Felisha Hall will be honored with the reading of poems written in their memory. Please join us in remembering, celebrating and recognizing community members past and present that leave their imprint on Otterbein and Benton County. Tree donations were made by Benton Central CAAP, Benton Central Super High Mileage Club, Otterbein Rotary Club, and The Friends of the Otterbein Public Library. Special thanks to these organizations along with Rick Gretencord, Diane Janz and Nate & Sandra Sattler!
