The spacious main hall of the new shelter house features a custom-made chandelier made from an old pulley used in an elevator. It is a prime example of the creativity of the city workers and the pride they take in their projects. The hall houses a complete kitchen (shown in the distance).
Faithful volunteers enable operation of Manning's Hausbarn-Heritage Park. In the tour photo above Nancy Stammer leads a group through the park. With the retirement of Freda and LeRoy Dammann, Tiffany Nichols now handles sales and operations; Elizabeth Leo handles the parks tourism and marketing. The Dammanns were honored for their years of dedication to park operation on April 11. The Park is now open for the season.
