The Lyons' Den

March 15, 2001

Construction continues ON SCHEDULE for the Ruby C. McSwain Education Center at the JC Raulston Arboretum, I'm pleased to say. However, there is still time for just about anyone to get their own "signature" permanently into the Center's environs......purchase a BRICK! Not for the building, but rather for functional display within pedestrian and plaza areas, these bricks will be engraved with your inscription....yes, there are letter # limitations, but please contact Ms. Donna Walker <> for all the details.

We have already run out of the $35 bricks, leaving ONLY those at the $100/brick level and all monies continue to go towards the building needs. This is a fabulous opportunity to support the JCRA and all that we do!


Mark you calendars.....The GALA IN THE GARDEN is coming.....Sunday, May 6 is the date and it is truly shaping up to be another exceptional benefit. And this year, we will kick off the start of an ENDOWMENT to support the JCRA. More info can be obtained from Donna Walker ( or from our Web site below in the near future. This Gala is for formal, be casual, be there!!! Want to stay the night? Plenty of hotels nearby! We'll be happy to help you out. This is our first formal announcement....more to come! Wait until you see our Silent Auction materials!

Thanks, everyone! Bob Lyons
