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 (http://lindleysgardencenter.com ) donated the tree, and Liz Yancey, director of Parks and Recreation in NSB had the site prepared. Kathy officiated.
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.
