Daisies in the Memorial Garden

We're still working on our Collinwood School Fire Memorial Garden!

On Friday June 24th, a few of us from the Little Red Cap Project got together to plant daisies in the Garden, beginning what will hopefully be a permanent upgrade for the Garden. (Daisies, because, not only are they hardy perennials that bloom most of the summer, but because Daisies remember children's innocence, and were often left on children's graves at the time of the Collinwood School Fire.)

Thanks to Dennis Crislip, Debbie L'Orange, Mary Bronson, who along with myself, got our daisies planted. And much thanks to Cavotta's for helping find these lovely Shasta daisies! And thanks to the Memorial students, whose "Penny Wars" last fall earned the funds to buy the daisies.
