Jackson Lab Anniversary 

60 years ago, the Ladies’ Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars gave the lab a $60,000 donation.

That original donation helped the lab rebuild after a fire swept across Mount Desert Island, destroying the facility.

On Wednesday, the group gave the lab another $60,000 to match their original donation.

A special plaque has been been placed in a garden at the lab to honor the organization, which has donated about a million dollars over the years.
