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.
