In time for planting season, Modern Woodman of America with Vicki Condon, financial representative and Winner Ladies Auxiliary VFW #4674 delivered planters to Rose Manor of Colome, Golden Prairie Manor and Elder Inn both of Winner. The project was completed in conjunction with the Good Neighbor program. The planters built by veteran Ken Van Kekerix are designed to resemble “feed bunks”. The dirt and plants were also provided to the facilities. Residents of the facilities should be able to work in the garden without having to get down on their knees. A wheelchair or chair will facilitate their planting, weeding, harvesting and anything else that needs done to a flower or vegetable garden.
The public is encouraged to drive by and look at their beautiful garden in late July or August. One resident stated, “I can’t wait to get my hands in the dirt and watch the flowers grow.”
