Planting a flowerbed can be almost like excavating an archeological site, as the Texas Exes Johnson County Chapter discovered Saturday.
“We dug up everything from a Barbie doll to a fake diamond ring to somebody’s old wallet,” says chapter member Belinda Linstrum. “I guess you never know what’s hidden in the dirt.”
More than 20 alumni, including some new members, came out to P.D. Lacewell Park in Cleburne to clear brush and plant orange and white flowers. The event was part of Texas Exes Care about the Project, a monthlong service initiative.
“It was a lot of fun to see that we’d made a visible difference in the beauty of the park,” says Linstrum.
