Chesterton Feed & Garden donates to bird sanctuary

Chesterton Feed & Garden Center owner Chuck Roth Jr., donated $500 to what he calls a “jewel” of the community. “The Westchester Migratory Bird Sanctuary is a great success story for our community,” he said. “Remember when it was a legal, local dumping site for local citizens? Through the foresight of the Porter County Parks to purchase the land, a man with a dream, Richard Maxey, and a relentless staff that never quit, the dream and hundreds of volunteers blood, sweat and tears brought what is now the Westchester Migratory Bird Sanctuary to life and will be enjoyed for generations to come.” From left are Maxey. project manager of WMBS; volunteer Terry Hoover, Roth, and volunteer Tom Kelly.
