Vonnie Kolbenschlag: The Gingko tree at LWC

Vonnie Kolbenschlag writes:
The ginkgo tree Dr. Bosela identified on Lindsey's Campus is young having been planted not long ago by Taft Neal for the Columbia Woman's Club. When this club disbanded, money left in the treasury went to buy trees and supplies for the animal shelter. Members with the longest membership got to say what tree to plant and where to plant it. Wanda Hill suggested a ginkgo be planted at Lindsey, and thanks to Taft, this was done. Previously the club purchased trees in memory of members who died.

I would like to share this quote:

"The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit" Nelson Henderson

This quote comes from a 1982 book "Under Whose Shade" by Wesley Henderson. His father, Nelson Henderson, gave him the quoted advice. - Vonnie Kolbenschlag
