GBCares: Olga Marshall Memorial Garden a Success!

GBCares volunteers were hard at work Saturday, May 29th 2010 cleaning and gardening a section of Gerritsen Avenue in Memorial of Olga Marshall. Olga Marshal, who passed away a few months ago, was the woman you always saw on Gerritsen Avenue gardening/beautifying on the avenue and around many of the bus stops.

What was before a barren section of Gerritsen Avenue now has a beautiful garden.

    Beautiful tribute indeed. This tribute beautifies the area rather than depresses it like those grave site looking memorials on the block better left for private cemeteries and private grieving. Job well done.

    The garden looks amazing. Everyone should be proud of their hard work. I'm sure Olga is loving it!!!
