>Garst Museum had a well-attended preview party tonight. The event was emceed by State Senator Keith Faber … and numerous board members were also on hand, including Barbara Martin, Eileen Litchfield, Kathy Kilgallon, Barbara Martin, John Marchal, Darryl Mehaffie, and many others (sorry to those not mentioned). Director Penny Perry gave an exclusive tour of the museum. Of particular note, the bottom photograph is an incredible scale model of the Fort of Greenville that every Greenville native should see.
Also in attendance tonight was State Sentor Fred Strahorn, whose district includes the southern part of Darke County, Miami County, and inner-city Dayton. Strahorn was apparently feeling the heat from this prior Darke Journal post. In all seriousness, Senator Strahorn seems like a great guy, and it was nice for him to travel to Darke County for this event.
[Apologies for the photo quality, as all were taken with a camera phone. The Advocate guy was there firing away – so make sure to check out his photos.]
The Garst Museum Fundraiser and Preview Committee would like to thank the DarkeJournal for including information about the event on June 19. The articles certainly added to the success and the museum and the community will benefit from that.
Thank you, The committee: Darryl Mehaffie, Kathy Kilgallon, Eileen Litchfield, Charlotte Wright, Marilyn Robbins, Pete Hemer, Diane Evans, Barbara Martin
