COLUMBIA CITY — Whitley County Farm Bureau has funded a grant to the Whitley County Agricultural Museum and 4-H Learning Center for the purchase of a 55 inch Smart TV and components.

The television will be used in the Maple Syrup Learning Center.

Each year the museum selects new themes for the center floor display, and this year the themes will be maple syrup and wheat.

The television will allow visitors to view videos of the history of maple syrup from pioneer days until the present and also show the different methods of production during the same time period.

Next year and following years the television will be used as an information resource for the different exhibits in the museum.
