Members of the Lennox Petal Pals saw a need for something to be done in the Petal Pals area of the park after the flower beds had not been maintained for several years. They spent the spring and summer cleaning up, weeding, planting and watering several times a week. They wanted to bring life back into the park that the original Petal Pals started in the 1960’s.
The group also spent time raising money by selling plants that needed to be divided. With a few private donations they were able to purchase an arbor and two trellises for the vines. A local family donated a bench in the area for seating.
Recently a couple local gardeners donated perennials of their own to add to the park and a local girl scout troop is donating two trees.
Many of the trees are old and have gotten damaged in the last few years of storms.
Recently, the Lennox Area Community Fund awarded the Lennox Petal Pals a $500 grant. With the money the Petal Pals will be able to add a table for visitors to enjoy.
LACF’s 2023 grants have been awarded to 12 recipients, they include: Lennox Historical Society, Lincoln County Fairgrounds, Lincoln County 4H, Love, Inc., Worthing Fire Department, Chancellor Fire Department, Lennox Library, Junior Achievement, Petal Pals, Lennox Ambulance, Lennox Historical Society, and Lennox Fire Department.
The LACF is a charitable endowment working to strengthen the vibrancy of the Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing communities.
Thanks to the support of generous donors and through the power of endorsement, the LACF has awarded hundreds of meaningful grants to nonprofits and causes throughout the Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing areas since 2004. To make a donation visit lennoxareacommunityfund.org.
Every gift, large or small, helps to increase the fund balance and allows the LACF to continue to give grants to local organizations like the Worthing Fire Department. Grant applications are due every year at the beginning of August. Organizations in Lennox, Chancellor and Worthing are encouraged to mark the date on their calendars and submit applications by that deadline.
