In memoriam

The memorial fund for Tillie, the Border Collie mix from Berea, who faithfully led visitors of Indian Fort up to one of its many scenic overlooks, reached its financial goal of $2,500. This gift to the college includes the lifelong costs of any upkeep that may be required in the future.

A commemorative 4" x 6" brass plaque and tree will be located at the base of the mountain, on the left side of the trailhead, honoring Tillie's 10 years of service. It was a common sight to see Tillie sitting there, waiting to lead yet another group of hikers back up the mountain. Both the plaque and the tree are scheduled to be in place by late fall of this year.
