PETEETNEET GROUNDS BEAUTIFICATION
The time is fast approaching for the annual flower planting at the Peteetneet Museum. We would like to encourage church groups, youth groups, scouts, Payson City employees, PPP members and any other interested individuals to come and help us plant flowers and beautify our grounds for the coming summer and fall season.
The more volunteers, the less time it takes to get everything planted. The tentative date for planting will be either May 7 or 14. This date is subject to the weather and the delivery of flowers. The exact time will be made available as it gets closer. Watch the Chronicle, our Peteetneet Blogspot or you may call Ray Wilson at 801-465-4192 or Janeen Dean at the Peteetneet Museum at 801-465-5265.
Each volunteer will be provided with flowers to plant, but it is asked that each person bring their own hand tools, shovels, etc. We are encouraging groups to adopt a planter to weed and care for during the summer. We appreciate the volunteers who take time to come and assist us in this activity.

All proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit our beautiful Historic Peteetneet Museum & Cultural Arts Center which was established in 1901. The actual building began in 1897 as a solution to replace four, one-room schools existing at that time. In 1988, the school was restored and turned into a cultural center and museum offering plenty of ongoing activities and instruction to the community.
Each year volunteers donate almost 12,000 hours of their time to share the museum with visitors. The museum and cultural arts center hosts over 34,000 visitors each year.
