PLANO, Texas -- September 17, 2013

Cirro Energy, a subsidiary of Dominion Resources, is helping make possible the
opening of the new Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden at the Dallas
Arboretum and Botanical Garden.Opening Sept. 21, this garden sets the gold
standard for children’s outdoor educational facilities worldwide, addressing
life and earth science education requirements in a beautiful, practical and
experiential setting with hands-on learning. Cirro Energy’s donation will
specifically support the first year’s educational programming in “Plants Are
Alive,” one of 12 new interactive galleries that will be featured in the
Adventure Garden.

“Cirro Energy’s financial support for the Dallas Arboretum is just one
component of our involvement,” said Cindi Wakefield, spokesperson for Cirro
Energy. “We’re also participating in the grand opening where Cirro Energy
volunteers will be on hand to show the garden’s wonder to visitors of all
generations from across the state of Texas. This is another chapter in Cirro
Energy’s longstanding commitment to educational programs that benefit the
communities we serve. We’re excited to be a part of such an important exhibit
that explains how plants use energy.”

The “Plants Are Alive” exhibit focuses on the processes that plants use to
convert sunlight into energy. Through the use of fun, hands-on features,
children and adults will experience the joy of learning in an impactful and
memorable way. With everything from giant flowers that children can build, to
a scavenger trail which shows many examples of the same plant parts, to a
light-up display that demonstrates how plants take in water, this exhibit is
sure to leave a positive impact on everyone experiencing the science brought
to life.

“We appreciate the commitment of Cirro Energy and its employees to our new
Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden,” said Cecile Bonte, Rory Meyers
Children’s Adventure Garden Capital Campaign Chair at the Dallas Arboretum and
Botanical Garden. “The Arboretum is dedicated to teaching people about nature
through exciting and captivating outdoor environments and classrooms. We’re so
grateful for supporters like Cirro Energy that have underwritten the
educational programming for the first year for Plants Are Alive for our
Adventure Garden.”

The Rory Meyers Children’s Adventure Garden promises to be an amazing addition
to the Dallas Arboretum.With science, nature, space exploration and energy
exhibits spread across 17 galleries over 8 acres, the garden has something for
everyone. It served over 100,000 children in 2013, and is destined to double
or triple that in 2014.
