Peter LaBarbara died Friday, June 8, 2018.
Peter was a good friend and donor to the White Mountain Nature Center. He came to us as an interested citizen of the White Mountains, wanting to do what he could for our wonderful wildlife.
One day he came to one of our Board meetings and asked how he could help. We were interested in what HE wanted to do, and found out that he was a fabulous graphic artist and designer. For the next few years, Peter designed almost all of our posters and flyers for our events; from Walk for the Woods to our Annual Benefit Dinner & Auction.
I remember one of my favorite was one where he asked me to pose for a photo he was taking. He used that image and added dinosaurs who were coming into the Nature Center Gallery. It was very funny, but extremely eye catching and motivating. We loved his sense of whimsy.
We will miss his talent, but more so we will miss Peter himself; a great friend to all he touched.
Rest in Peace, Peter
