[EDITOR’S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The B-Town Blog nor its staff:]

A blooming thank you to the Highline Community who purchased plants, trees, shrubs, bulbs, herbs, berries and native plants from the Parkside Garden Club last Saturday (May 6).

Your purchases will fund thousands of dollars in multiple college student scholarships, including:

  • $2,000 to the South Seattle Scholarship Fund
  • $250 to the Conservation Teachers Scholarship
  • $500 to the Washington State Flower and Garden Club Scholarship Fund
  • Another of our largest donations was $1,500 to the Highline Botanical Garden Greenhouse.

Our total donations last year totaled $6,950.

Money also stays locally with donations to the Highline Historical Society, the Highline Botanical Gardens and the South Seattle Chinese Garden.

Thank you,
Arlene Rankin
Parkside Garden Club
