When combined with $2,371.93 raised by employees through special events that included a taco bar and chili cookoff, $51,883.93 was contributed to Roane County United Way by Pro2Serve and its employees.
By Ellen Probert Williamson How delightful is the summer breeze wafting across the garden and carrying with it the mingled scents of all the flowers? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could bottle it and uncork it in the house on a snowy February day?
Bottling flower scents is, of course, the business of the perfumer. And a fascinating business it is. Did you know that at Grasse, France, there are 50 perfume factories employing many hundreds of people?

Members of Junior Roane Clean Community System at Cherokee Middle School sold the school’s parking lot potholes for Valentine’s Day. Individuals paid $5, $10 or $25 depending on the size of the pothole. A heart was painted around the hole with initials beside it. Sweethearts got a framed picture of their beloved placing a frilly valentine over their pothole. Members hoped to raise enough money to get the potholes filled.
