Donation bestowedPLATTSBURGH — Stewart's Shops recently presented a check for $1,250 to the Babbie Rural and Farm Learning Museum as part of Stewart's Holiday Match program.The funds are to be used for children 18 years and younger in the geographic area where shops are located and where money was raised. The museum is in the process of building a family/handicapped bathroom with a changing station, safety bars and plenty of space for a wheelchair or parents with toddlers. Partial funding was received through an earlier grant from the Charles R. Wood Foundation, which allowed them to install the septic system. The funding from the grant will be used to purchase bathroom fixtures. The plan is to have the facility operating sometime during the 2017 season. The museum will open starting May 13.For more information about the Babbie Rural and Farm Learning Museum, visit www.babbiemuseum.org.
