On Friday, June 23, State Representative Wayne Rosenthal (R-Morrisonville) spoke at the Williamsville Public Library and Museum (WPLM) for a dedication ceremony of the new Outdoor Education Space.
The dedication is a culmination of work that began four years ago with the exploration of
potential designs and funding sources. With the help of a local resident, Lee Miller, Williams
Township provided a grant to begin designing the space. An area landscape architect, Neil
Brumleve, of Massie Massie and Associates, designed the plans that helped WPLM seek the
grant funding needed to make the project a reality.
“It was certainly an honor to be apart of this special ceremony for the Outdoor Education Space,” said Rosenthal. “With the support from the community, this project will offer the public and place to relax and enjoy nature.”
Village President, Tom Yokley, helped secure funding from local community organizations and
businesses. These contributions, in combination with donations from generous individuals,
such as Jack Ealey, of Ealey Transportation, and groups such as the Friends of WPLM, allowed
WPLM to add a shed, flowerbeds, and a rock-lined swale for drainage.
This is exciting news for Williamsville residents and surrounding communities.
