Today we had Grand Opening of Colonial Lakes Community Garden. There was free food and drinks for all residents as well as music generously provided by Will. We used this occasion to honor Ray who brought this idea to live from start to finish. He received a certificate award honoring his dedication to this community and cake which he generously shared with the rest of the community. Here are some sample pictures from tonight’s event.
Colonial Lakes subdivision is starting a community garden this year. There are 12 lots that have already been spoken for. This project is Ray’s initiative and he has contributed countless hours for it getting permits from county, getting volunteers, trimming dead trees around the sectioned off area and host of other things. For this we could not be more grateful. We also extend thanks to all volunteers who have helped Ray like Chino, Will, Alberto, Darius, and quite a few other.
Thank you all and great luck with your gardens.
