Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the Chitwood Alumni Center at Hale Place received a much needed landscape renovation in 2015. The latest addition to the house is a sculpture crafted from a maple tree on the front lawn. The tree, which was dying, has been crafted into a beautiful eagle sculpture. Check out the video below!
