Memorial to Methow to be dedicated Saturday

Posted

PATEROS – Dedication ceremonies for the Memorial to the Methow park on Lakeshore Drive will be held at noon Saturday, May 27.
Methow native, Mark Miller, was at the site Tuesday, May 23, showing a group of Pateros second, third and fourth graders the finer points of assembling a teepee for Saturday’s dedication ceremonies. Miller was among the committee members who helped take the project to create a Memorial to the Methow park from idea to reality.
