Update on Deedee Crowe - 24
12/12/06     Lynn Crowe Pritchett  (1978)      apritchett@kimbanet.com
Greetings Class of '79! This is Lynn Crowe Pritchett, class of '78. I live here in town and work as a massage therapist.
There were six Crowe children that graduated from MHS. Our dad, Hollis Crowe, still lives on Stratford Court. You can find all of our senior photos in the Alumni search. Isn't that cool? Anyway, class of '79, my little sister Deedee, fun-loving and happy as always, is now working as a waitress at the Dutch Inn. Stop in and tell her I sent you.

Re: Update on Deedee Crowe
Deedee is a Master Gardener, and recently helped with a plant swap at the Martinsville Bulletin. She's still waitressing at the Dutch Inn. Here's the newpaper article from Sunday's paper.

Gardeners' Exchange

Plant swap a flurry of shared flowers, advice
Sunday, March 30, 2008

By HOLLY KOZELSKY - Bulletin Accent Editor

Dozens of area gardeners got together Saturday morning for an intense session of giving and taking at the Gardeners’ Exchange plant swap.

Plants, bulbs and cuttings spilled out of boxes and bags on all of the tables in a spacious back room of the Martinsville Bulletin building. The Bulletin’s Accent Department sponsored the free event.

Boxes full of zinnia and marigold seeds, all earlier donated by Kay Finch and Angela Bourland, were set out for people to take all they wanted. Three dozen little pots of hellebores (Lenten rose), given by Neil Tatum, also were free for the taking.

Most people who came had to make several trips from their vehicles to carry in everything they had to share.

Hildred Moorman of Martinsville was the first person to show up. She set down a big box full of 18 daylilies, each wrapped neatly in a paper packet, and announced that she was there to help. Throughout the morning, she traded and talked and welcomed in newcomers.

David McConnell and Morgan Holland, both in matching dark green Master Gardener shirts, mingled with the crowd to answer questions about plants. Aileen Wilson and DeeDee Mullins, also Master Gardeners, helped people make the connections they were looking for.

A.C. Wilson of Martinsville commented on the enthusiasm of the gardeners. He said that with “so much knowledge� and “all this horsepower,� a community-wide garden club should be formed. The club could plant and care for gardens in public areas like road medians, for example: “There’s so much undone.�

Teresa Prillaman of Collinsville said that the plant exchange should be the first of many. “I hope we can all come back next year and share what we got� after plants acquired at this exchange multiply, she said.

Lola Huff of Mountain Valley said can’t get around and garden like she used to since she broke her right leg last year. However, she didn’t want to miss a chance to trade with other gardeners. Her husband William Maurice Huff, dug up the canna lilies, daffodils and “yellow bush� (jasmine) that she brought to share.

The main flurry of activity lasted for about an hour. Miraculously, the mounds and piles of plants on the tables emptied out. As people began leaving, some making two or three trips to their vehicles to carry everything out, the Master Gardeners and Moorman began cleaning the tables and sweeping up dirt.

When the room was nearly empty, one bag holding a plant remained.

“I don’t know what it is,� said Moorman, who was giving advice to a first-time young gardener in her first home, “but plant it. Plant it.�
