The Flower Garden Thrives

Have you seen it recently?  The lovely flower garden at the corner of 20th Street and Grand Avenue was sponsored by Ames Noon Kiwanis Club beginning in 1995.  Then,  in 1999, Ames Golden K Kiwanis with the support of the City of Ames who provides the bedding plants– began planting and maintaining the garden and has done so continuously for the past 18 years.  Until recently, Golden K members Vaughn Speer and Tom Peter had primary responsibility for maintaining the garden.  Pictured is Tom Peter and his wife Judy Peter who do an outstanding job of making the Golden K flower garden a landmark that the entire community  as well as visitors to Ames can enjoy.
