Ruthmere Perimeter Wall Restoration Project
You may have heard that Ruthmere’s Historic Perimeter Wall is getting a facelift. The perimeter wall is being restored in 2017 and we need your help! Watch the video above and share with friends and family. Learn how you can get free tickets to Ruthmere's Drive-In Fridays, attend the Adopt-A-Pom Party, and more at Another Brick in the Wall!
The total cost of this restoration process is $34,000, which includes brick and gate work. Just some of the things that need to be fixed include: repair of the iron gates, moss and lichens need to be removed, fixing cracks in the walls and the brick, one of the pillars near the front gate is leaning, etc. The work to restore the wall has already begun, but we still need to raise enough money to cover all the costs of the restoration. Ruthmere has acquired half of the funds through the Community Foundation of Elkhart County, $1,000 from the Corson Family Foundation and a total of $2,959 thanks to the generosity of Ruthmere members and visitors. We still need $13,041 to complete the restoration. We are turning to the community for help. To donate to the Perimeter Wall Project call 574-264-0330 ext 1015 or go to Another Brick in the Wall.
