Galeon Lake Flowers

By Henry Lush

For nearly forty years, Pete and Jean Folk faithfully planted, watered, fed the beautiful flowers around the Galeton Berger Lake. The Galeton Rotary Club had these benches and planters built to enhance the beauty of this Galeton treasure. There were 20 planters in these benches. As time goes on, Pete and Jean thought it was time to retire. Fortunately while at the Pine Creek Inn, Tisha Merwine thought she and others would be willing to take on this project to help the Galeton Community

Pete accepted their offer. Pete and Jean helped supervise, the Rotary Club purchased the flowers and the planting work began. Others helped as well. Family and friends, Dave Merwine, Shaylie Davenport, Torissa Davenport, Braydon , Kayleigh, Torrin and Dexter Gail.

The Rotary benches allow for seating for all to sit and view our beautiful Berger Lake and town. The flowers in the planters add to the beauty of the Collins Memorial Park and our community.

The Rotary Club has played a major role in providing the benches and funding the flowers, but the town owes a huge thank you to Pete and Jean Folk for faithfully taking care of the flower boxes for many years.
