University of California Agriculture and Natural
Resources (UC ANR), the 4-H Youth Development

youth in hands-on learning activities in the areas
of science, citizenship and healthy living.
The program provides many opportunities for youth to
explore their interests in a safe and structured

adult volunteers. With 20 clubs offering more than

Hospital Gets New Court Yard Patio
(l to r) Major
contributors, seated Sharon McCulley, Marlene
Tulley, Rose Schneider, Darla Van Riet (seated)
helped make it all possible.
The skilled nursing residents, family, visitors and
employees of Mayers Memorial Hospital District have
a beautiful Courtyard Patio thanks to the efforts of
many generous donors. Over the past few years
various funds have been designated for the courtyard
project. Most recently the addition of beautiful new
patio furniture made the courtyard complete.
The project was supported by many individuals and
organizations. Donations were made in memory of Pam
Brown for handmade wooden benches by Willie’s Wood
Creations. Residents of the Skilled Nursing Facility
had a yard sale to raise funds and the Mountain
Cruisers Car Club also donated to the project.
Community member Sharon McCulley donated items to
the Lucky Finds and Thrift Store where proceeds were
earmarked for the courtyard project. There were also
a couple of past senior projects that designated
funds and a project that built the water feature.
Darla Van Riet of Do It Best Valley Hardware also
supported the project with a savings on the
beautiful patio furniture.
The beautiful courtyard and garden are maintained by
Rose Schneider and her volunteer gardeners. They
contribute many hours in the beautification of the
yard, grounds, pond, and courtyard.
