A nursery sale to benefit Project Graduation has branched out and will be providing assistance to the Black History Museum of Warren County.
The Project Graduation Nursery sale was held April 2-3. Items remaining were donated to the Black History Museum of Warren County. Its nursery sale is being held this Saturday, April 17, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“We are getting other items donated and will hold a sale,” said Black History Museum curator Wayne Wolford, who is organizing the event with Ramona Bernard. “Those proceeds will go to benefit the Black History Museum.”
The day will also be used to pay homage to the medical roots of The Clinic Office Building where the museum is currently located.
“We’ve invited Dr. Wally Bigbee and Dr. Ray Troop to the clinic on that day,” said Wolford. “People can look through the nursery stock and then have a meet-and-greet with Dr. Bigbee and Dr. Troop. They will be available from 12 to 2 p.m. We’d like to establish a record of people who were born at, or treated at, the hospital. If you know of anyone, you can add their name to the wall.”
The Medical Clinic and Hospital was constructed in 1937. It served the community as the only hospital for more than 40 years.
