Remembered: Moon Viewing Platform

Arthur's nephew and AEF Board member, Christopher Erickson, reminisces about the Erickson garden: "Not sure where the term 'Moon Viewing Platform' came from as it was not originally referred to as such. It had been a marble that Arthur had scored from the demolition of the old police station, but became so cracked over time it had to be replaced. Geoff and I installed this granite under Arthur’s supervision which he described as the 'Egyptian way' with a sand base. The granite was donated by Frank Mahovolich, a great supporter of Arthur. I always thought the marble looked better, but you don’t look a gift horse in the mouth."
