Thanks to Myrna Dannett for organizing a group of citizens to clean up the property of a handicapped citizen. The night before the Garden Walk, some of the participants asked about the yard of a property which was in poor condition and volunteered to clean it up. Dannett did some research; found the resident was handicapped; contacted the volunteers; and, after several trips, have cleaned up the property. They will soon be constructing a ramp for easy access to the home. Many thanks from all of us. ED
