Pat Thomson
Everyday Star

Pat Thomson is a volunteer with ARCH. ARCH's mission is to advocate for the protection and preservation of historically and culturally significant assets and historic places in Allen County and Northeast Indiana.  As one of the ARCH volunteers, Pat generously donates her time and efforts for events and uses her skills as a master gardener.  Pat tends the garden outside the ARCH offices, which completes the outside restoration of 818 S. Lafayette Street.  Pat also tends several other neighborhood gardens throughout Fort Wayne, adding to the beauty of the city.

The inspiration for the Murosity art piece is a rendering of both the before and after renovation of the current ARCH offices.  The painting depicts the care and skill provided by ARCH and its supporters to restore the building to its former glory and includes Pat's master gardening talents.
