Bench, plaque dedicated to memory of Peg Worth

A new granite bench and bronze plaque, located just across the Armistice Bridge, recently were dedicated to the late artist and real estate agent Peg Worth.

A candlelight ceremony was held on the bridge Jan. 15 to dedicate the bench and plaque in Worth’s memory.

Last summer, Worth was honored by friends and family who created a scholarship named “Peg’s FUNd” to benefit young art students at Waterfall Arts.

An art auction of Worth’s own paintings, as well as her extensive art collection, raised $13,100 to establish the scholarship and install the granite bench and bronze plaque located along a walking path.

Those wishing to contribute to Peg’s FUNd should call Waterfall Arts at 338-2222, email [email protected] or visit waterfallarts.org.
