The service was held at Rogers Park, a place that Barb enjoyed reading her paper and looking out at the lake. Stories and desserts were shared, and many laughed over Barb's antics over the years. She passed away Aug. 14 from complications due to breast cancer. Following her wishes, no obituary was written. International collaboration at Up Yonda FarmDr. Gregor Schmitz, curator of the Konstanz University botanical garden near Lake Constance, Germany, recently spent three weeks volunteering at Up Yonda Farm. During this time he conducted research on the ecosystem and diversity of the goldenrod plant, as well as collected and cataloged hundreds of insect, amphibian, mammal and fungi species for display in the natural history museum at Up Yonda. The educational staff at Up Yonda enjoyed the opportunity to meet and learn from Dr. Schmitz, who returned with his family to Germany on Sept. 28, and the staff members look forward to using his collections as a resource during the upcoming school year. The community is invited to view the new collections and learn more about Dr. Schmitz during normal center hours which are Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bolton Fall Festival this weekendOn Oct. 9 and 10, the residents of Bolton will celebrate their Fall Festival with something for everyone, including arts and crafts, activity tables, games and bake sales - all to be offered in Rogers Park.
