If not for the generosity of Pangburn’s Family IGA, Scott’s of Medway, Dead River, Trail End Festival’s 5k Run, and the many area townspeople purchasing water, soda, coffee and raffle tickets the gardens along the trail would not have looked as beautiful as they did this past season. The gardens came to life with the help of Bobbie Allen aka The Flower Lady and the diligent maintenance, plantings, fundraising work she put in on the gardens. The gas from Dead River fed the motorized equipment. The mulch from Scott’s made the gardens look fresh and neat. Money raised from raffles, selling drinks, and donations allowed Bobbie to purchase mulch, garden soil, a picnic table and bench, and seeds for the trail. Bobbie hope to see the walkers again next spring when the flowers start to bloom again. Anyone wishing to volunteer with Bobbie can let her know by email @ email@example.com or check her out on Facebook and leave a message. Also, anyone including businesses, and philanthropists wanting to make donations can do so at anytime. The next item needed to be purchased is a lawn tractor/mower with bagger attachment so she can use all the money she can get.
