McCarthy stands with them in front of the new Visitors Center on U.S. 211 just outside Washington. The bank’s donation helped provide needed computer equipment for the center. Funded with a private-public partnership comprised largely of donated funds, the center has seen hundreds of drop-ins in its first three weekends open, Fickel said. An official ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for today (Sept. 23) at 6.
