The Miriam Ruggles Adkins Fund was able to complete Mrs. Adkins bequest.
Miriam Ruggles Adkins Fund is pleased to present a long overdue bequest of $30,000 to the ArtsaRound organization, entrusting it to further the cultural arts in Pickaway County. This bequest was designated as part of the original allocation of Mrs. Adkins’s funds; however, there was no such cultural arts organization at the time in 1989, so the money was invested in the fund at the Columbus Foundation. Former resident of Circleville, Charlie Jackson, was the founder and first president of ArtsaRound and was instrumental in developing this organization, which has over time become a well-established and time-tested organization. In attendance were both the original and current committee members of the Miriam Ruggles Fund, (from left to right) Dale Herron, ArtsaRound president, Alexis Conrad, PCCF executive director, Charlie Jackson, Louis Adkins, and Earl Palm (sitting).
