The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) continues to improve its facilities under the guidance of Managing Director, Jeanne Glass. The gutters at the main building at 515 Spring Street were replaced thanks to a generous donation from the Zumwalt Family Foundation. Glass said, “Gutters have been on our priority list for over two years. They were barely functioning and sorely in need of repair. We worked with NWA Gutter Systems to create a better layout with fewer linear feet. The gutters are so nice and provide much better water management.”
The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to board member KJ Zumwalt and the Zumwalt Family Foundation for continuing their generous financial support. Executive Director, Michelle Hannon, said, “The Zumwalt Family Foundation has allowed us to improve our facilities in a myriad of much-needed ways. They are always willing work with us to determine what is most needed and how best to positively impact the comfort and safety of our writers-in-residence. We are immensely grateful.”
