On Sunday, June 4, the AOEA board and Outdoor Lab staff thanked our generous longtime donors with a festive picnic celebration. It was wonderful to see so many old friends and to recognize them for their years of service and support to the Outdoor Lab. Thank you to all who attended!
Special recognition was given via these two awards:
Volunteer of the Decade
Judy Collins and family
Volunteer of the Year
Marni Pennington Coleman
At the event, AOEA President Mike Nardolilli unveiled renderings of a planned replacement for Striker Cottage
and announced the availability of a number of “Naming Opportunities”
at the Outdoor Lab, including the following:
“TINY HOUSES” @ $50,000 EACH
The “Tiny Houses” are two small units that are able to provide sleeping
accommodations to Outdoor Lab Staff who stay at the Lab during
the Fifth Grade Overnights.
HISTORY DISPLAY CASE @ $20,000
The Lab property includes Glasscock Gap that was used by troops during the Civil War.
We have discovered a number of Civil War and other historic artifacts on the Lab property that should be appropriately displayed.
50th ANNIVERSARY FRIENDS OF PHOEBE @ $5,000 EACH
Help us build the replacement for the Striker Cottage by becoming a 50th Anniversary Friend of Phoebe.
Your name will be placed on a plaque in the new structure as your legacy to the children of Arlington.
Please contact the Outdoor Lab if you are interested in supporting our Capital Campaign!
