Community members donate to Dick Pointer Cemetery Improvement Project
The fundraising campaign for the Dick Pointer Cemetery Improvement Project is off to a good start, thanks to several generous donations.
Brandon Johnson of the law firm Stroebel and Johnson recently presented the Lewisburg in Bloom Committee with a very generous donation to sponsor three Norway spruce trees and one Miss Kim lilac bush.
The following have also made very helpful contributions: Mark and Allyson Liebendorfer; Connie Manchester; Jeanne Wahl; David and Suzanne Gibson; Robert and Ruby Mareneck; Jeff Jeffus; William Turner and Susan Rosshirt; Greenworks Recycling; David and Shannon Beatty; Greenbrier Valley Master Gardeners. The Lewisburg House and Garden Club has decided to donate the money for the wrought iron fence.
The following items are still available for donations: Seven Miss Kim lilac bushes ($60 each), four Constellation dogwood trees ($275 each), twenty green velvet dwarf boxwoods ($70 each).
