During the summer months, a group of interested folks gave the Farmer’s Hall new windows, a paint job and a new outdoor toilet. The same group, with a few changes, had given the building a similar renewal about a decade ago. Most live in the Farmer area, others have contributed because they feel that such buildings should be preserved.
In an article in the April 16, 2003 issue of The Wenatchee World, Kimberly Gormley, also active in the 2013 effort, commented on the renewal effort. “Somebody has to do these things because we’re losing our heritage.”
