The Friends and Flower Garden Club appreciates the generous donation of a Ukrainian maple tree and a juniper pine tree from John and Ron Romatzke of Arbor Acres Farm. These trees were planted in the Orchard City Town Park in memory of Bobbie De Leau and Zoe Weiss.
Soon, a plaque will be placed by each tree, in their memory.
The Friends and Flower Garden Club also thanks David Boyd from the Parks Department of Orchard City for planting the trees and for their future care. Club members hope everyone who visits the park will take notice, enjoy these trees, and the shade they will provide.
The Friends and Flower Garden Club is a small group of ladies from Delta, Cedaredge and Orchard City who meet monthly, at a member's house. During meetings ladies may enjoy a presentation, or an outing, and, of course, social time with dessert, coffee or tea. They also plant and maintain gardens at Horizons Care Center in Eckert each summer.
Two fatal accidents occurred in Delta County within a two-day span last week.
Casey Gillenwater, 25, of Delta was killed the afternoon of Wednesday, Sept. 13, in a single-vehicle rollover on Highway 133 outside of Hotchkiss.
