The Hill is maintained by The Dahlia Hill Society of Midland, a nonprofit organization created in 1998 to preserve and maintain the garden. At the top of Dahlia Hill is an art gallery featuring original designs in cast paper and bronze. All revenue from sales is used to support the maintenance and operating cost of the garden. An annual tuber sale, open to the public, takes place the last two Saturdays in May from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hill. Flowers begin appearing in July and continue until the first frost. There is no admission fee. Donations may be made to an endowment fund at the Midland Area Community Foundation. The Dahlia Hill website is http://www. dahliahill.org/

The sanctuary of the Bertha E. R. Strosacker Memorial Presbyterian Church took on the look of a warehouse in mid-March. Colorful blankets brought in by parishioners covered the pews to protect them.

But the mood was festive as about 30 volunteers showed up to help unload two separate semi truckloads of organ components for the church’s new $1.3 million pipe organ.
