Memorial garden will enhance Hermann’s Pilot House project

The latest donation for the Gerald Engemann Memorial Garden at the Pilot House was received last week from the Deutschheim Association in the amount of $1,000.
Lois Puchta, a member of Deutschheim, said that with the state historic site buildings in the vicinity, it was only fitting that the association make a contribution. Deutschheim Association is an arm that supports Deutschheim State Historic Site.
