Now that we completed the restoration on the Pump House, now the Welcome Center, we're ready to focus on the Water Tower. We are calling it the Tin Man, because the style of tower has the characteristics of the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz.
Continue to watch for updates and events taking place around the Village. When the new retaurant Liliann's opens, we will be having a fundraising event there.
We have new tee shirts being printed with a logo of the Welcome Center and Water Tower. These will be for sale as a fundraiser.
We are also creating a new Tin Man patio just behind the bench at the Welcome Center. We will have 4" x 8" engraved pavers for sale for $125.
Watch for other fundraising events in the coming months.
Our goal is to raise another $25,000 to help pay for the cost of the restoration and repainting of the Tin Man.
