THE EL DORADO County, California Chapter of People to People International dedicated a monument at the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Colony Farm in Gold Hill in memory of a former member Joan Barton Barsotti, who passed away in 2010. The families of Brian and Doug Veerkamp donated the granite slab from their family property near Pearl Lake in the Sierra for the monument. After being inscribed, it was transported to the site and installed among a natural outcropping. In addition, 17 year old Jarrett Scheuffele constructed the pathway for his Eagle Scout project.
