On October 18 we honored the generous donors who contributed to the arbor restoration. We were very fortunate to host Jim and Pam Mondo of Monroe, CT representing Mary Hugh Arnold Scott. Mrs. Scott is the daughter of Isaac Arnold who was responsible for the restoration of the museum and gardens. We thank everyone who generously contributed.
