The event at the Columbian theater was hosted by Dr. Ben Arnold, owner of the theater and President of Heart of Adair. He paid special tribute to Sue Stivers of the Chamber of Commerce, cosponsor of the project. The City of Columbia, Curtis Hardwick, Mayor, and Dr. Arnold. were the major underwriters of the project.
History of Project
The project was initiated through Heart of Adair members working on the North 55 tree project. Charles Grimsley recruited Darren Henson, who made the contact with Professor Horst Schach. Dr. Schach agreed to have his class use Columbia and Adair County for a spring '98 project. Heart of Adair and C-AC Chamber of Commerce jointly provided liaison between UK and the community.
The entire plan is contained in a 92-page booklet, which is available from the sponsoring City of Columbia, Heart of Adair, and Chamber of Commerce. Only 100 were produced in the original order, but Dr. Arnold said that he hopes to have enough to meet all demands for the book.
