Amherst Garden Walk blooms despite COVID-19 - Amherst Bee

Preparation for this year’s Amherst Garden Walk involved extensive advertising, including online promotion and signage, to raise awareness for the event. According to Hidy, safety is a top priority for the garden walk. In addition to receiving approval for this year’s plan from the Town of Amherst Supervisor, Hidy and Moden are implementing other safety precautions. “We’re mandating that all visitors are wearing a mask. They also practice social distancing,” Hidy said. “In the past, we have had different homeowners pass out beverages, and we opted to not do that, basically to minimize touching or any form of human contact.” Even with the new safety guidelines and procedures, Hidy expects the walk to be an enjoyable community event. “We just want people to know that we take their safety as well as the homeowners’ safety very seriously,” Hidy said. If individuals are not able to attend the garden walk but are still interested in seeing the decorated gardens, pictures taken by both visitors and participants will be available on the “Amherst Garden Walk” Facebook page,, following the event. More information about the Amherst Garden Walk can be found on this Facebook page, and questions about this year’s event can be emailed to ...

Lewes in Bloom brightens up Second Street -

Finally, on June 10, the Lewes in Bloom Second Street patrons planted the flowers, many of which were grown by volunteers at the Lewes in Bloom warehouse. Volunteers covered and uncovered the growing young plants depending on the early spring weather. They fertilized, watered and nursed them along for several months till they were ready to be planted. Lewes in Bloom volunteers invite people to take notice of the planters and enjoy them. Members also ask that the plantings be treated kindly, noting the flowers and greenery don’t like trash or cigarette butts, but they do love to be admired. When people are in the city early on Tuesday mornings, they are invited to say hello to the patrons who are busy deadheading and keeping the planters looking their best.

Howard Dungan - Obituary -

California; Glendale, Arizona; Pecos, Texas; Douglas, Arizona; and Greenville, South Carolina as First Station. In the South andTexas he became more aware of deeper issues of racial inequality than he'd seen in Nebraska, where his family sometimes hosted a visiting African Methodist Episcopal (AME) minister for lunch, and he strove to treat everyone fairly throughout his life. In the chapel on base in Pecos, Texas he married Anita Alene Sibbitt, an accomplished violinist who had graduated from what is now the University of Nebraska at Kearney and taught high school for a year in Yutan,Nebraska. She followed Howard around the country for much of his pilot training, working variously as a butcher's helper, nurse's aid, and store clerk.Howard was later stationed in Hawaii, flying North American B-25 Mitchells. While he was flying missions in B-25s as a First Lieutenant in the 7th Air Force, 41st Bombardment Group, 820th Bomb Squadron out of Okinawa over Japan and Japanese-occupied China, Anita had become a "Rosie the Riveter" and learned gas welding at Ryan Aeronautical in San Diego.After the war she resumed teaching and then guidance counseling, and completed her master's degree at what is now San Diego State University. Howard also completed his bachelor's degree there on the G.I. Bill, and later his master's degree. Both did post-graduate work at the University of Southern California.From 1948 to 1984 Howard was a teacher and guidance counselor in the San Diego Unified School District, with most of that time at Theodore Roosevelt Junior High School (now Roosevelt International Middle School) where he primarily taught geography, social studies, and history, sometimes with what was referred to as a "Mr. Dungan story." Years into retirement, he would still run into former students greeting him and saying, "Mr. Dungan, you told the dumbestjokes and stories!" Howard would ask which one; the former student would repeat it and the context, and then he would reply, "Ah, but you remembered!"Howard and Anita loved to play golf at the Tijuana Country Club and Balboa Park Golf Course, were once active in the Methodist Church in La Mesa, and had a custom home built in Spring Valley where they resided until they passed. They vacationed in Mexico City, and traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada with a succession of travel trailers. These trips were later accompanied by their only child, Michelle Dungan, now a retired California Department of Transportation Associate Environmental Planner. After Anita passed in 2006,Howard eventually resumed travel in a Roadtrek motorhome, completing the last trip to Kearney, Nebraska by himself at age 97, where he was interviewed by the newspaper. Howard flew with Honor Flight to Washington D.C. and spoke to a 5th grade class in Car...

Connections flower through Lewes woman's Facebook group -

Victoria Brown of Lewes recognized this need and started a Facebook group called Sisterhood of the Traveling Flowers & Plants - Delaware. Since the group started in May, it has quickly turned into a source of optimism for many and grown to include 750 local Delaware members. To participate in the Facebook group, members are tasked with safely delivering flowers or plants to the front doorstep of the home of other group members overnight. Once a plant is received, the recipient posts a photo online of their potted present so the rest of the online community knows they have been “planted.” “I thought it was great to get out of the house during the quarantine and make someone’s day,” said Brown. “One small gesture can change a person's outlook on life.” The group has brought her closer to people she would have otherwise never met to build this online community. She said, “I have received many messages from ladies who were going through depression or personal issues. Being planted made them feel so happy and important.” Brown is encouraged to see how contagious generosity can be, especially during a time where people need to be reminded of the power that kindness and positivity can bring. To join Sisterhood of the ...

Uptown Flower Shop Sustained By Strong Saint John Roots -

A piece of family history (Image: Elizabeth MacLeod) The building survived the Great Saint John Fire of 1877 and used to be a hardware and butcher shop, which were later combined to make Keirstead’s. “You have some of the old coolers that we still have from back when they opened up this shop in the 40’s,” said Dean, showing where some of the flowers are stored now. The shop has been run by Guy’s great grandson, Brian Keirstead since 1999, who turned the building’s upper level into a museum and gift shop, selling works of local artists such as Fred Ross and Mary Galbraith until it closed a few years ago. From Mid-March to Easter Keirstead stayed open at reduced hours throughout the pandemic, then closed for a few weeks until they reopened before Mother’s Day on May 9. “It’s really difficult getting flowers right now. They’re just starting to come back, but it’s not where it used to be; it’s a little difficult and it’s a little pricier to get flowers right now too,” said Dean. “But other than that, as long as people give us a lot of notice for specialty items, we can get them in.” Working reduced hours and with a reduced stock of flowers during spring and prime flower-giving occasions, from Easter to Mother’s Day to Professional Secretary’s Day, was difficult. “It’s been a struggle and most people are understanding about it, but you do get to the odd person that really is not happy and there’s nothing we can do,” she said. #gallery-2 { margin: auto; } #gallery-2 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 33%; } #gallery-2 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-2 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */ A selection of photos from Keirstead’s Flowers interior (Image: Elizabeth MacLeod) Aside from bringing in their two plant maintenance staff members, Keirstead’s has not brought back any of its staff. “Some of the offices have opened back up so they’re able to work a couple of days a week, but the rest of the staff, there’s not enough business to bring them back,” Dean said. While summer is normally a quiet period, they have ha...
