Hayden Calfee, who turned 7 on October 18, made a generous donation of $80 to the Virginia Museum of Natural History for the "Hooker Furniture Discovery Reef." Rather than receive birthday gifts from friends, she chose to donate the money received to the museum. Hayden wants to add a globe to the "Discovery Reef" for the enjoyment of other children and families. Thank you to Hayden and her family for this thoughtful and generous gift that will benefit countless other children who visit the museum. To learn more about supporting the museum, call 276-634-4161.
