Letters to the Editor
Dozens of concerned people have asked me this past summer, “What’s wrong with the Credit Union, where we had for years a showcase of beautiful flowers? Everyone talked about them. Beauty and variety in landscaping makes people happy and attracts customers to your business. Now though, a Credit Union member said, they must not want people coming around there any more.” Which seems sad.
A lot of the flowers I had dug from Credit Union members’ yards. People like: Dennis and Sandy King, Fred and Barbara Meyers, Jo Ayers, Bill and Betty Miller, Walt and Carol Netzel, Bill and Vivian Dugan, David and Bonny Schmidt, just to name a few. Also, we had a variety of beautiful irises donated by Merle Roberts, a local resident who is a world prize-winning iris breeder.
All this is gone now, which is a shame. Too bad the Credit Union board members did not put a stop to it. Now we have rocks … which is quite like filling the Cole Park swim pool with sand. One more wonderful Coulee Dam memory is just gone now.
