On Friday afternoon I attended a dedication of a new garden space at Metropolitan State. There has been an unused space next to the library ever since its construction. On Friday this beautiful garden is in place, but with a somewhat sad reason. It is a memorial to the library dean, very beloved and respected by all. He became ill at work one day and in 2012 died from brain cancer. He loved gardens and he promoted community connections, so this garden seemed to be a lovely way to use the space to remember and salute David Barton's legacy.
And finally the ribbon cutting.
