Designated Fund Established for Mentone Historical Museum

In February, Board Members of the Lawrence D. Bell Aircraft Museum worked
with the Kosciusko County Community Foundation in establishing a new designated
fund, called the Mentone Historical Museum Fund. The fund is to support
activities related to the preservation of Mentone's town history.
