Collaboration improves gazebo on Melrose Avenue

Thanks to the Polk County Community Foundation (PCCF), the Town of Tryon, Tryon Fine Arts Center (TFAC) and tradesman Rick Dunn, Greene Corner Park’s gazebo is being repaired, scraped and painted, all through donations. The park is owned by the Town of Tryon but maintained by TFAC with funds provided for the maintenance through the Kirby Endowment Fund at the PCCF. “Greene” was Katherine Kirby’s mother’s maiden name, and it is through the Kirby’s that the lot was purchased and a park formed in 1985. Greene Corner is available for event rentals through TFAC. (photo submitted by Beth Child)
