Daisy Scouts Palnt Red and White Flower Garden on University of Louisiana at Lafayette Campus
Thirteen Daisy Scouts from the Acadiana area, attending with their mothers, and Lafayette Garden Club volunteers planted red and white pentas, ULL’s school colors, at Lafayette Garden Club’s Honorary Bridge Garden on the University of Louisiana at Lafayette campus, on Saturday, April 30.
Julie Haack, of Lafayette Garden Club, addressed the young Scouts as they posed on the bridge before preparing to begin planting, and later directed the Scouts as they planted individual yellow marigolds to take home.
Lafayette Garden Club volunteers were Cathy Andrew, Loraine Allain, Jean Finley, Julie Haack, Margaret Hargroder, Angelle Marsh, Jeanie Richard, Sarah Schoeffler, Kathy Van Ness and Henrietta Boriskie, who all did a great job, making the garden planting a success. Volunteers and Daisy Scouts had fun loading mulch onto wheelbarrows. ULL’s gardener Karen Prichard provided the pentas, tools and a mound of mulch for the volunteers to work with. [
