Friends of Peninsula State Park (FPSP) received a $500 grant from State Farm thanks to retired insurance agent John Plume.
Plume worked as a ranger at Peninsula and Newport state parks in the late 1960s. Last year, Plume volunteered at Peninsula, clearing brush and litter from the shore. In exchange for service work, State Farm awarded FPSP the grant. It will be used to support park nature education and trail improvements.
