In Memoriam

In the bright fall sun on the 10th of November at 11 a.m., a small group of friends gathered to remember Donnadine’s life of service to our community.  They remembered the Corridor 44 fight, the mapping of the canals of New Smyrna Beach, the greyhound retired track dogs, and of course the books to schools.  

Jeff and Kathy Reinhart orchestrated the event.  They started a bank account to get donations. Debbie Pell of Lindley’s Nursery ( ) donated the tree, and Liz Yancey, director of Parks and Recreation in NSB had the site prepared.  Kathy officiated.

People spoke about Donnadine’s life and work in their particular situations.  Then we planted the tree by putting shovels full of dirt into the hole.

Oh yes, Donnadine was there too.  She showed her presence by orchestrating a flyover of American White Pelicans for about five minutes before the ceremony.

Thanks Donnadine for helping make this a better place.
