Ward Mead Volunteer Tuesdays
Written by Chris Newell   

It was a great day to start the annual removal of Tulips at Ward Meade and getting them ready for thier plant sale held in Historic Old Prairie Town this Saturday April 25th starting at 8 a.m.

With a chill in the air but the sun peaking through, it was not long before light jackets were wrapped around waists and long sleeve shirts set on the ground as we found ourselves head first in the flower beds digging and chatting.  Apporximately 9 volunteeers showed up to help dig and tranport the tulips to a large wagon and to cleanup the grounds.  Within a few hours all the tulips designated for the sale were removed.

TAWGS members present that day were Bob Sathoff and Chris Newell.   So a big thanks for representing our association.  Lets see if we can improve that turnout next week.  It's fun and meaniful and a great way to give back to the community.

Next Ward Meade Volunteer clean-up day is scheduled for Tuesday April 28th starting at 8 a.m.  Contact Bob Sathoff at 785-640-1482 for more information and/or to let him know you will be attending.  Hey!  There's lemonaid and cookies.  Can't beat that reward for hard (fun) work.
