A tremendous effort was made to remove all shrubs and perennials that had been in the ground for 40 years on Tuesday, June 8.
Pictured from left to right are volunteers Marvin Yager, Mayor Ralph Kuda, Dwaine Barnes, Sharon Lewton and Ann Kohl.
Other volunteers, not pictured, were Dwight Galloway, Jean Barnes, Janie Zimmer and Teresa Stuart.
The next step is to fill the open area with landscape timbers. Plans are also being drawn up for installing new shrubs, etc., in the fall.
Donations may be dropped off at State Farm on Hwy. 54 or mailed to Carol Johnson, LaFemme Arts Club treasurer, at 314 Utterback, Vandalia, MO 63382.
Any questions may be directed to Linda Klug, club president, at 573-489-1888.
