Abbott didn’t just donate daffodils, she dug them up

-A A +A

When Pauline Abbott read my letter in the Roane County News requesting donations of daffodil bulbs to beautify the area below the Kingston Library, she called to volunteer some of hers.

I drove to her house to view the area and I could see that there was a great plenty. Before I could round up a platoon of Rotarians to dig, Mrs. Abbott called back. She had dug them herself. There were five grocery sacks full of bulbs waiting for pick up.

Rotarians Ken Thoms, Bill Mixon and I got about a third of the bulbs in the groud right away, and took care of the rest soon after. The recent rains helped. Last year our drill couldn’t dent the ground.
