Four of Six Another Success

On Saturday, our fourth of six sequential volunteer work days went very well.  With a cooler morning and overcast skies, we had 30 volunteers trickle in over the morning and we planted close to 6,000 plants in three areas.  Jayce (above) was one of our new helpers and at 15 months old, might be our youngest volunteer on record, just edging out Lily who started at 18 months old (now 5?).  Our target areas included the reception garden, gazebo garden and a berm planted entirely with impatiens closer to the Parker Education center.  Janice, Big John and Larry again helped coordinate volunteers, plants, supplies, debris collection and shifting around as needed.  Bill O. was in for some garbage patrol and mowing.  A big thanks though to our planters which included Amy, Aaron, Jayce, Roy W., Mary W., Bob K., Gary, Kay, Sue C., Amy and her daughter Meghan (sixth photo down), Mike P., Jalina, Leslie B., Eva, Ron W., Bev W., Hal, Doris, Mary W., Tina B., Jody, Sigley, Keith, Jodi, Deb G. and her grandson, Mary #3 and Maggie.  We hope for similar turnouts for our next two work days which will also include planting large areas.
