Great River Health Systems will dedicate a garden representing the gift of organ and tissue donation at 2 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 25. The Jeffery L. Weigert Donor Memorial Garden is on the north side of the West Burlington health system’s lake. The public is invited. Visitors may park in the employee parking lot on West Agency Road, across from Southeastern Community College, and follow the sidewalk to the lake and garden.

Weigert worked in the health system’s Plant Operations Department until his death in 2010. He was a tissue donor. His family, representatives of the Iowa Donor Network and Iowa Eye Bank, and other organ donors will be recognized at the dedication.
