A dedication in memory of long time Cashmere Museum volunteer and supporter, Bill Barnaby, will be held at the Museum, May 7 at 2:30 p.m.
Before his death last December in Wenatchee, Bill spent much of his time and talents benefiting the Museum, especially in the Assay Office.
He was also an artist, and a plaque will be installed near the mural he painted in the entry room on the Museum's lower level.
The plaque reads as follows: "Bill Barnaby - Guardian of the Village. We are grateful for Bill Barnaby's many years of faithful service to the Cashmere Museum and Pioneer Village. He served on the Board of Directors, contributed his artwork to the Gift Shop, volunteered as a docent, and also brought the assay office to life! For more than 19 years, Bill gave countless days and hours of unselfish devotion to the improvement of the Museum. Thank you Bill. Friends of Old Mission, May 2012"
Friends of Old Mission, the Museum's support group, invites all friends of Bill to attend this dedication, enjoy some cookies, and share their favorite stories about Bill.
