Gainesville Lions celebrate Earth Day

Apr. 26—The Gainesville Lions Club celebrated Earth Day by planting bedding flowers at the base of The Texas Historical Commission plaque commemorating Booker T. Washington School in Gainesville. The plants used for the Earth Day tribute were generously donated by Smith Feed Store, 514 West Broadway in Gainesville. The base of the memorial, which had been overcome with weeds and debris, was once again brought back to colorful life. The monument is located on Martin Luther King Boulevard, west of Culberson Street.
