Honor Board Names

Memorial Board

On the inside wall of the Martha Crone Visitor Shelter hangs the Eliason Honor Board, presented in memory of Lydia W. Eliason. Memorial funds were received by the Friends from her daughter Marian following Lydia's death on June 19, 1981. An engraved name plate is attached for Memorials for a deceased person when the amount received reaches $100 within a year or in the case of "in-honor-of" gifts, when the amount reaches $500.

There are currently three name-plate boards. Names listed below begin with the oldest (1981). Names followed by an "*" are memorials for a deceased person. Names without the "*" are "in-honor-of" donations for living persons (at the time of donation).
